About this title


Following the success of Portrait of Venice and Palaces of Rome, this beautiful book tours the palaces, villas, and castles of Sicily.

From the ancient Roman villa of Piazza Armerina through the Arab castles, baroque masterpieces such as Villa Pallagonia, to the art-nouveau Villa Bordonaro alle Croci- these pages reveal 30 public and private dwellings built and furnished by Italy's greatest architects and artists over the centuries. Luxuriant gardens full of flowers and statues, antique tapestries, glorious frescoed, and priceless furniture appear in hundreds of full-color photographs. History, art and anecdote intertwine in the text for an enchanting view of Sicily's great heritage.

Angheli Zalapi organizes art exhibitions and congresses on Sicilian painters of the 15th to 17th centuries.

Photographs by Melo Minnella have been published in international magazines such as Life, Mondo, and Stern
