The Wine Roads in Sicily
To visit Sicily and leave without having tasted some of its infinite wine offer is perhaps more serious than going to Rome and not seeing the Pope. For this reason, to find yourself in this inextricable maze of vines and bunches, we recommend seven paths to follow.
Let's start with the road of Monreale Doc, in the province of Palermo, where the renowned Catarratto vine offers its valuable docs such as Sclafani County, Contessa Entellina and Monreale. Bending to the west we arrive in Trapani, Italy's most controversial province, with the Alcamo doc road, which includes the docs of Erice and Marsala (West Lands and Val di Mazara).
Was an ancient Greek town on the southwest coast of Sicily; Today is the largest archaeological park in Europe. The ruins of the city are located in the territory of the municipality of Castelvetrano, in the southern part of the province of Trapani. At the archaeological site, there are some temples along the acropolis along with other secondary constructions, while other temples are on a hilltop.
Many buildings are ruined due to earthquakes occurring in medieval times; However, some anastilosic interventions have made it possible to rebuild almost completely the Example E (the so-called Hera Temple), and to elevate much of one of the long sides of Temple C.
The sculptures found in the excavations of Selinunte are found mainly in the National Archaeological Museum of Palermo. The most famous work, the Efebo di Selinunte, is now the exception, which today is exhibited at the Civic Museum of Castelvetrano.
The Burri's Or Gibellina's cripple
is the name with which is known the "Grande Cretto", a land art work made site specific by Alberto Burri between 1984 and 1989 in the place where the old town of Gibellina was completely destroyed by the earthquake Of 1968.
He designed a giant monument of death that traverses the streets and lanes of the old city: it is in the same place where once there were the ruins, currently undergone by the work of Burri. From above the work appears as a series of cement fractures on the ground, whose artistic value lies in the freezing of a country's historical memory. Each slit is two to three feet wide, while the blocks are about one meter and sixty feet high and has an area of approximately 8,000 square feet, making it one of the most extensive contemporary artworks in the world.
Hus was not new to this subject already reproduced in many medium-sized paintings.
It can be visited along the SS 119 in the stretch that intersects the Integral Nature Reserve of the Santa Ninfa Cave, between the town of Salaparuta and the town of Salaparuta.
The work was partially completed and completed only in 2015.

The archaeological site of Contrada Stretto
Is about three kilometers east of the town of Partanna. The presence of numerous moats excavated in this area and dating back to the Neolithic era gave Partanna the title of "city of the moat civilization". In fact, they had a double function, both water and culture. Within them, both individual and collective graves, ceramic deposits, trace fires and even two chains associated with animal bones were found. Among the most interesting elements there is a gallery excavated in the rock probably used also for cultural use. Ceramics and finds found inside the moats and tombs include a chronological arch that goes from Neolithic to Ancient Bronze. The oldest, dating back to the 6th millennium BC, are those belonging to the facies of "imprinted ceramics".

Belicina Museum and Natural Network
There is an awareness that the identity of any place or small center in Belize, whose museums are expression, has the potential to consolidate only in an integrated system at a territorial scale.
To tell a story, which is not just the one of the individual places, but that of all the countries of the Belian Valley, to reflect on the concept of belonging and community the museum network is born. The history of ancient arts, its territory and landscape, its geological modifications, the great contemporary masters, is already documented in some already heavily structured and historicized museums and in others recently formed. Nowadays, from chronic structural deficiencies, the need arises to try to build a museum system, including the Belianian architectural and landscape emergencies. It is born of the awareness that only through the creation of a network can we overcome the limits, for a significant appreciation of the rich and inestimable heritage of which we are witnesses. The idea is to work for a museum in the territory of Belize, which, starting from individual institutions, gives a continuous reading of history, art, material culture, architecture and landscape and allows knowledge, Conservation and enhancement. There are structures with different stories on the network, some museums are well structured and inserted in tourist routes, others are being defined because of recent training.
CHURCH OF SAN ROCCO
At the beginning of Via La Masa, in the south-east of the town Belicina area, there is the church of San Rocco.
Construction began in 1576. The saint to whom is dedicated the building, of French origin, he went to Rome on a pilgrimage, and during the return trip, he spent himself in curing plague victims affected by the terrible disease that scourged the lands she was running. He also infected, healed miraculously. Together with S. Sebastiano became patron saint of plague victims.
He turned, therefore, the faithful to be preserved or to defeat the plague.
Thus, during the plague that struck Sicily in the second half of the sixteenth century, a group of believers partannesi thought it only right to establish, May 20, 1576, the nucleus of the brotherhood of S. Rocco, with the intent to build a church "to intercedendum et implorandum gratiam apud Deum ut omnes Christi fidelis liberet a contagious disease in successful reign. "
