The Sicily region
The history of Sicily has seen Sicily usually controlled by greater powers—Roman, Vandal, Byzantine, Islamic, Norman, Hohenstaufen, Catalan, Spaniard—but also experiencing short periods of independence, as under the Greeks and later as the Emirate then Kingdom of Sicily. Although today part of the Republic of Italy, it has its own distinct culture.
Sicily is both the largest region of the modern state of Italy and the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Its central location and natural resources ensured that it has been considered a crucial strategic location due in large part to its importance for Mediterranean trade routes. For example, the area was highly regarded as part of Magna Graecia, with Cicero describing Syracuse as the greatest and most beautiful city of all Ancient Greece.
The economic history of rural Sicily has focused on its "latifundium economy" caused by the centrality of large, originally feudal, estates used for cereal cultivation and animal husbandry that developed in the 14th century and persisted until World War II.
The house is sited in the marine locality of 'Capo Zafferano', at about half hour of distance by car from Palermo, the monumental capital of Sicily, city of art, history and culture. Capo Zafferano is known for its famous lighthouse and for its rocky and sandy beaches. It is very close to the the picturesque fishing village of Porticello and the Phoenicians archaeological site of Solunto, as well as to the beautiful beaches of Aspra and Mongerbino. Moreover it is ten minutes far from the town of Bagheria, known for the beautiful villas of the aristocracy of the eighteen and nineteen century.
