Andromeda – Breathing between earth and sky

A place supposed to visit quickly, but stayed almost three hours. I just could not leave. A place that breathes between the earth and sky. Somehow lucky being completely alone. When I decided to leave people showed up.

The story of founder Lorenzo: My father wanted me to be a shepherd. One night I went out to breathe under the stars. The idea of ​​the theater was conceived by “the Spirit, like the wind, blows where it wishes”. At the end of the nineteenth century it blew here on this hill, where I used to take the sheep at sunset to ruminate in peace. So I decided to build a stone theater here.

Many years later, I learned that the Andromeda Constellation Galaxy M31 will merge with our Galaxy in about four and a half billion years and I began to raise a sacred fence to the 108 visible stars of the Andromeda Constellation.

Now listen to the silence, sit on a star and look to the Earth. This is not a theater … but a spaceship that is traveling slowly towards the Andromeda Galaxy.

Interesting events to attend are summer and winter solstice Not recommended for visitors who can’t stay silent Self-sufficient with own produce, Sangiovese natural wine produce

Nicosia – a mountain town

A Rainy DaY in Militello – Just PassinG By

In these small sicilian towns, hidden between the mountains you find the sicilian lifestyle. Take a coffee and study the people. Seeing these old men in the Piazza and Tabacchaio corners talking and talking, surely about the same things they talked yesterday and last week…and life goes on.

Walking to the narrow streets meeting women talking to each other about Idda and Iddu (her and him) and other neighbor issues to be solved. Perhaps it wa someones birthday, or foreigners bought a house in the area, or baptism of grand kids…and life goes on.

Rent a car, drive around, take your time, drink that coffe in central Piazza…relax. People stare, they ask the cafe owner who these new comers are… And this is life! Not much has changed since the last century.


I dessa sm? sicilianska st?der, g?mda mellan bergen hittar du den sicilianska livsstilen. Ta en kaffe och studera folket. Att se dessa gamla m?n i Piazzan och Tabacchaio h?rnan prata och prata, s?kert om samma saker som de pratade om ig?r pch f?rra veckan… och livet forts?tter.

G? kring de smala gatorna d?r du m?ter kvinnor som pratar med varandra om Idda och Iddu (henne och honom) och andra grannfr?gor som ska l?sas. Kanske var det n?gons f?delsedag, eller utl?nningar k?pte ett hus i omr?det, eller dop f?r barnbarn … och livet forts?tter.

Hyr en bil, k?r runt, ta din tid, drick det d?r kaffet i centrala Piazzan … koppla av. M?nniskor stirrar, de fr?gar kaf??garen vem de h?r nykomnna ?r … Och det h?r ?r livet! Inte mycket har f?r?ndrats sedan f?rra seklet.

Piano Casazze

We visited a location called Piano Casazze in Sicily. On this place was located a very important greek city built 400-300 B.C. It was a agricultural business city where also their money called Galaria had a grape symbol. Money had different symbols depending of the area and what was mainly produced in that area. People lived in caves and structures built of stone. Under the hill you can find an arabian synagogue. The historical guide said the origins are from 2500-1500 B.C. I have to ask again…

We are heading to the white hill top on the left.


Vi bes?kte en plats som heter Piano Casazze p? Sicilien. P? denna plats l?g en mycket viktig grekisk stad byggd 400-300 f.Kr. Det var en jordbruksstad d?r ocks? deras pengar som kallas Galaria hade en druva som symbol. Pengarna hade olika symboler beroende av omr?det och vad som huvudsakligen produceras i det omr?det. Folk bodde i grottor och strukturer byggda av sten. Under kullen kan du hitta en arabisk synagoga. Historiska guiden sade att ursprunget ?r fr?n 2500-1500 f.Kr. Jag m?ste fr?ga igen
