Corleone town & Mafia museum

Mafia, it is a sensitive topic, but belongs to the Sicilian history and actually also the present. Whatever one says is always wrong, but decided to visit Corleone and the Mafia museum to see and hold the original documents of the Maxi Trial in my hands.

Corleone is a small town south of Palermo with stunning scenery driving there. 600 m.a.s.l. with approximately 10000 inhabitants. Most Sicilian mafia bosses comes from Corleone and still have over 70 “men of honor” alive, whereof most of them are jailed. The town is still run by a mafia boss. It is one of the kindest places I have visited in Sicily because people work hard to show another side of this area.

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

Lercara Friddi – Frank Sinatra and Lucky Luciano

Stannade i Lercara Friddi fyra dagar, en perfekt plats även för att besöka andra intressanta platser i området. Staden är i grunden tillägnad Frank Sinatra och besökte hans farföräldrars hus. Det är också födelseplatsen för maffiabossen Lucky Luciano, personinspiration till Gudfader-filmerna. Här bor ca 6200, beläget 675 m.ö.h, och blev en viktig svavelkälla 1828. Det tar bara tio minuter att gå genom stadens huvudgata och det är väldigt lantligt Sicilien.

Central Sicily | Leonforte (the fountain)

Sicily in lands are stunning with amazing scenery and hidden mountains villages and towns where you see another side of Sicily than tourist destinations. I always recommend guests to do a small road trip in Sicily, then you find the real treasures of this island.
Saw a photo of a very special fountain and located it to a small town in central Sicily, Leonforte with 13,000 inhabitants. Had to see it with my own eyes. After two hour drive from Catania on winding mountain roads I finally arrived. Amazing is that the water is drinkable.

Siciliens inland är fantastisk med vackert landskap med dolda bergsbyar och städer där du ser en annan sida av Sicilien än turistmålen. Jag rekommenderar alltid gästerna att göra en liten bilresa på Sicilien, då hittar du de verkliga skatterna på denna ö.
Såg ett foto av en mycket speciell fontän och lokaliserade den till en liten stad i centrala Sicilien, Leonforte med 13 000 invånare. Tvungen att se den med egna ögon. Efter två timmars bilresa från Catania på slingrande bergsvägar kom jag äntligen fram. Fantastiskt är att vattnet är drickbart.

Traffic in Sicily!
