Sciascia's places

Racalmuto Racalmuto AG

"Rahal-maut", the ancient name of Racalmuto, includes a path that starts from the chiaramontana age castle, that was the home of Del Carretto's family of which Sciascia has remembered some deeds and that today is the headquarters of Parco Ragalpetra.

Climbing down toward "la Matrice", you can glimpse the long stairway that goes up to the S.Maria del Monte's church.

The stairway of which Sciascia tells the traditional mule's climbing to give thanks to the Madonna and where took place the legendary "Pampillonia" feast that is the celebration in honor of the Madonna del Monte, celebrated even now from 11 to 15 July.
