Castronuovo di Sicilia is a full coffer of treasures, an outdoot stage where archaeology, art, nature, panoramas and rituals, interlaces each other enjoying us by way of its forests, cliffs, stones witnesses of an ultramillenarian history.
The reasts of the Sicani, an ancient population, fascinate us as weel as the bizantine ones on the Kassar, the Arab and Norman ones on the hill of San Vitale, the alleys, the arches, the court-yards, made luminous by the local yellow marble and the precious works of art guarded in the churches.
Among castles and palaces, statues and frescoes, bridges and fountains, country houses, coves, valleys and immense green grass lands, this documentary leads us, with full extended wings moving flight, to the discovery of odors, tastes and traditions. These values are best understood when the faith and the popular devotion wrap of lights and colors all the city and the sounds that accompany the rituals of the Holy Week, the commemoration of the patron Saint Vitale and the evocative procession of the SS. Crocifisso, propagate on the air.
