It is one of Ibla’s walks more attached to me and that I like share with the guests, a lattice of alleys of Arabian ages. Crossed the neighborhood door, close to the house, you enter in an urban labyrinth at few meters from Baroque buildings; alleys and hidden stairs to be lost as in the middle-eastern medina neighborhood, you will feel in love by the scents of home cooking or in the middle of street football game between kids. It is a walks in a memory and in history before the Ragusa Ibla earthquakes of 1693.
Knew one of oldest Sicilian cheese, Ragusano PDO, produced using the traditional wood tools and matured in secret natural caves or across the vineyard of South-East together the local wine makers meeting the passion and the revival of historic vine varieties that make popular the Hyblean terroir are some of experiences suggested because just knowing the past you will understand the land and culture surround ourselves.
The most important celebrities were entranced by the light of Sicilian South-East baroque, Elio Vittorini wrote a praise in one of his most important book. It’s a trip into Sicilian culture, surrounded by buildings rich of details and acanthus leaves that preserves the art treasures. Modica with oldest glories of countship and a piece of chocolate made by old cold-processing method of cocoa and after to lose yourself in Scicli with Via Mormino Penna, an historical street where stunning masks and hidden rooms will charming the way of light.
The circumstance to spend a day on a gold sandy beach of Marina di Ragusa (25 km from Ragusa), tasting a fish soup, made with the original recipe of 50s by our father, drinking a chalice of champagne relaxing and overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in swimwear. The beach club “Lido Azzurro 1953 da Serafino” has seen the most important people and actors of Dolce Vita ages, it was easy meet Marcello Mastroianni close to you.
