Bundled like a swallow's nest on the slopes of a mountain, in front of enchanting views and scenarios, surrounded by precipices and deep gorges, Caltabellotta offers one of the most pleasant and nicest mountain resorts of Sicily.
Caltabellotta is the "Creche City" all year around, but during the Christmas season the town becomes even more fascinating. The architectural space blends with the value of the traditions; mountains and skies meet with the work of men, creating an almost surreal atmosphere all across the landscape. This atmosphere leads us into the night, and under the stars, taking us through the lengthy itinerary of nature re-invented by men, nature once originated from nothing. We rediscover the memory of a specific time and space, that reveal themselves through the symbolic games of objects and gestures, values that have always been rooted within the deep history of each one of us, and always will.
