Description

The space

The area where Casal sikelio borns were,in 1800,an old occupies about two hectares of land.
This area is rich of lemon trees,orange trees and secular olive trees. The architectural structure belonged to rich families and it's composed by an old grindstone dating back to 1833 with millstones and presses existing still today,used for grape crushing and pressing of the olives.
Near the grindstone there were the stables, the barn and accommodations of seasonal laborers.
In 1868 was built the master's summer accomodation on the first floor and around 900 arose an other area that was used for the storage of the result of productions and collections.
It's thanks to the care and dedication of the owners if after a long process of restoration (began in 2008 and still in progress) today most of these environments have become the rooms of Casal Sikelio, a fascinating blend of traditional and modern country.

Chi sono:

Sono un giovane imprenditore con la passione e l'esperienza nel settore oleario che continua ancora dopo 5 generazioni. Ho deciso insieme alla mia famiglia di rilevare una vecchia masseria tipica della Sicilia e di farla ritornare con tanti sacrifici al suo antico splendore a cui oggi abbiamo dato il nome di: Casal Sikelio.

Ho viaggiato molto e conosciuto tante persone in questi anni ma con il tempo mi sono reso conto che non c'è niente di più bello della mia terra. La riscoperta delle tradizioni, dell'arte, del cibo, dei profumi, e del calore che solo i tuoi conterranei possono darti; hanno fatto si che in me nascesse la consapevolezza di voler investire qui il mio futuro e dedicare il resto della mia vita a far conoscere ciò che la Sicilia ha da offrire, a chi decide di visitarla.

Il mio tipo di viaggio ideale è con uno zaino in spalla, una tenda, e delle scarpe comode per camminare. Perché solo guardandosi attorno puoi renderti conto che anche la più piccola pietra ha una storia da raccontare.

Sono un bassista e un pittore. Anche se ho messo di lato i miei pennelli, la mia vena da artista non si esaurisce mai.
