The text and splendid filmate sequences of this document accompany us to the discovery of the millenary history of Petralia Sottana, showed of the colorful madonita country the huge archaeological, artistic, naturalistic, landscaped patrimony and of traditions.

They slide therefore under to our kidnapped eyes the evocative images of the cove of the Vecchiuzzo and an archeological find, alleys and courtyard, portal and the Fontanas and then churches, palaces, works of art and remote angles that speak about a glorious past generations.

To the medieval aspect of the historical center they make to counter-attraction all around breathtaking panoramas, valleys and mounts, torrents and ancient bridges in stone, sanctuaries and signs of the material culture, dipped in the integral natural atmosphere of the Park of the Madonie, wild and incomparable beauty and great geologic value.

The true spirit of Petralia Sottana comes picking the aspects more intimate of the popular devotion, travelling between rituals that accompany the petraliesi to the rediscovery of the own origins, from the Processione of the Saint Patron Calogero to that one in honor of the Madonna of Alto, from the being involved of the Corteo Nunzial to recalling Dance of the Cordella.

The fascination of the Madonie mountains can be easily found in the castles, in the medieval villages arose around them and arranged so to crown the top of the mountains, or placed in the mild valleys.

The same fascination can also be found in the works of art, in the churches and the baronial palaces that embellish the city systems of Muslim derivation, in the archaeological sites, in the suburbane villas as well as in the small rural churches and in the flour mills placed among rich valleys and soft hills.

The territory of the Madonie mountains is an isle in the island, a paradise of earth and sky where each corner guards its perfect history and its nature.

It comes introduced in its multiple fascinating treasures through this video that, for evocative images and thoroughness of the text, is not only proposed as a didactic subsidy for those who wants to better know the beauties of the Madonie but also like a contribution to the respawn of this wonderful piece of Sicily and a stimulus for those young people wishing to spend theit own energies in the earth they born.
