The Sicily region


Sampieri is a little village in the municipality of Scicli, in the province of Ragusa. Famous seaside resort, charming old fishing village, is situated along a spur of limestone, between two beaches of fine golden sand. The economy of the village is nowadays mainly linked to agricultural activities and tourism. At the eastern end of the beach more of the township, at the top of a cliff of about 5 meters high, dominates the landscape of the coastal the Fornace Penna, which the locals call "o' Pisciuotto". " The plant has remained a ruin because of an arson fire occurred in 1924. It was a thriving mill in which bricks were produced, exported throughout the Mediterranean basin.

Today it is a tourist attraction, thanks to the use as a location for several episodes of the television series Il Commissario Montalbano, a character created by the writer Andrea Camilleri. A hundred meters from the building, in the direction of the beach and near a cave, now obscured by vegetation, there was an uncontaminated source of water that flowed until a few decades ago, now you can see the remains of an ancient well, maybe previous the greek period. Carved into the limestone rock, it is a remembrance of what was to be the real reason of the location of this landing. Sampieri, in fact, in the past it was probably a coastal point of supply of drinking water for the sailors.

Today Sampieri has its most intense moments during summer filling up with vacationers and tourists that populate the beaches and nightlife. Its winter with its slow rhythms rediscovers the magic of time travel.

In Sampieri and around the traces of human presence dating back to very ancient times. In the resort called “Costa 'ri carro”, adjacent to the minor beach, are still visible the remains of calcareous rock excavations, plausible evidence of a settlement from the Neolithic period.

Prehistoric remains are also evident in the so-called "Cava do Ràbbuso", a valley located in the hinterland of the Fornace Penna. In the area where it is currently located Sampieri, according to some, there was a Greek colony called Apolline, name derived from Apollo, as in the sixth century b.C. in the area called “o' Puzziddu” apparently there was a temple, now lost, in honor of Apollo. The Arab geographers mention the name of Sampieri as Marsa Siklah , a port where ships that came from North Africa and the Near East could berth until the thirteenth century. The etymology of the name of Sampieri seems to be related, according to some, at St. Peter the Apostle, who landed here in 40 AD, on his way to Rome.
