    Sciacca

    February 13 in Italy ⋅ 🌬 12 °C

    I spent a couple of warm nights in Sciacca, a pleasant fishing port on the South coast. There was nothing particular to see, which added to the relaxed atmosphere. They are probably glad that the “Sciacca Case” - a bloody feud between the two most powerful families of the town, the Perellos and the Lunas - is over. The cause of this bloodbath was a jilted bride. No-one seems to know the exact circumstances anymore (if they ever did!) but suffice it to say that beautiful and rich Margherita Peralta, a member of the Spanish Lunas family, never did get to marry the handsome Giovanni Perollo! So enormous was the insult that all hell was let loose and an epic cycle of vendetta erupted that lasted over 100 years and killed over half the town’s population.
    The mural artwork had no description attached so I cannot explain it.

    Sciacca.

    January 8, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Was man auf keinen Fall auf dem schönen Sizilien zwischen all der Kultur und den sportlichen Betätigungsmöglichkeiten vergessen sollte, ist sich zu entspannen ☀️

    Genau das taten wir an unserem 9. Ausflugstag mit nichts weiter als einem ausgiebigen Spaziergang durch die Straßen von Sciacca. Dieses bunte Örtchen gilt als Hochburg der Keramikkunst und gibt sich auch keinerlei Mühe dieses Talent vor seinen Besuchern zu verstecken. Überall finden wir bunte Fliesen, Blumentöpfe,Teller und in Hauswände eingearbeitete Mosaike.Read more
