The Sicily region
Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea; along with surrounding minor islands, it constitutes an autonomous region of Italy, the Regione Siciliana (Sicilian Region).
Sicily is located in the central Mediterranean. It extends from the tip of the Apennine peninsula, from which it is separated only by the narrow Strait of Messina, towards the North African coast. Its most prominent landmark is Mount Etna, which is at 3,320 m (10,890 ft) the tallest active volcano in Europe and one of the most active in the world. The island has a typical Mediterranean climate.
The earliest archeological evidence of human dwelling on the island dates from as early as 8000 BC. At around 750 BC, Sicily became a Greek colony and for the next 600 years it was the site of the Greek–Punic and Roman–Punic wars, which ended with the Roman destruction of Carthage. After the fall of the Roman Empire in the 5th century AD, Sicily often changed hands, and during the early Middle Ages it was ruled in turn by the Vandals, Ostrogoths, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans. Later on, the Kingdom of Sicily lasted between 1130 and 1816, first subordinated to the crowns of Aragon, Spain, the Holy Roman Empire, and finally unified under the Bourbons with Naples, as the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. Following the Expedition of the Thousand, a Giuseppe Garibaldi-led revolt during the Italian Unification process and a plebiscite, it became part of Italy in 1860. After the birth of the Italian Republic in 1946, Sicily was given special status as an autonomous region.
Sicily has a rich and unique culture, especially with regard to the arts, music, literature, cuisine and architecture. Sicily also holds importance for archeological and ancient sites such as the Necropolis of Pantalica, the Valley of the Temples and Selinunte.
It 'a place which is about 5 kilometers from Castellammare, a vast plain between Castellaccio and Dagala Secca that slopes slightly towards Guidaloca Scopello.
Historically part of the vast territory called "agro Erice" and under the authority of the feudal baron of Baida. In the Arab era Fraginesi was certainly inhabited by Saracens and here and there, in fact, were found some tombs dating back to that era. The name itself seems to be of Arab origin.
Coming from Castellammare, the plain of Fraginesi begins with a place called "Castellaccio". From the name, you do some proponents of the argument that on the hill of the same name was once a castle existed. However, it seems that this name might also come from the peculiar morphology of this hill, which has an unlikely resemblance to a "castle" produced by Mother Nature. The hill also could also have some distant resemblance to the Babylonian ziggurat, or perhaps much more profanely could even resemble a dancer Iberian act of making spin around itself a fantastic clothing bell.
Fraginesi, in fact, is not only a very fertile land, but over the last 50 years of the century. XX has also become a tourist site that lends itself very much to ensure villeggiature dream. Following this news, in fact, the area has been enriched by shelters more comfortable and rich, and is partly also changed the social fabric of the owners and inhabitants. Many of these, that is, they are no longer castellammaresi, gradually increased the number of Palermo and more often you meet people of foreign origin.
