The garden has been in my family since the year 1725, when the town of Casteldaccia.was founded by my ancestors
I grew up and played every summer with my brother and my cousins in this garden, at that time much larger. Many years later, also my children played in it every summer. Many of my fondest memories are connected to this garden
Why Maria chose Casteldaccia
The house, built in 1965, was my first project after I graduated in Architecture!
Every year I return with my family to this house and to Casteldaccia to restore my energy and get in touch with my roots.
For 10 years, during summer, I ran in the garden a ‘Scuolina’, a free Art School for the children of Casteldaccia and nearby towns, teaching drawing, painting and ceramics.
What makes this villa unique
My home is located off the main road of Casteldaccia, at walking distance from all the stores. At the same time allows me to retreat at home in the paradise of my subtropical garden.
Casteldaccia is close to Bagheria, a larger town, where I can go shopping, and still enjoy the fresh air of the countryside.
Palermo, the capital of Sicily, is only 20 minutes away from my reach, with its history, culture and traditions, restaurants, museums, churches, squares.
