Raffaele La Scala's collection, already recognized by the Assessorship for Cultural Heritage of the Sicilian Region and and registered at the REI (Registry Intangible Heritage) with the UNESCO's mark, can be seen with guided tours into Villa La Scala, near Agrigento's Valle dei Templi, in a beautiful background full of typical Mediterranean colors: green like nature, blue like sea, red like passion and warmth of Sicilians and Sicily.

The collection has already been honored and eulogized by the writer Andrea Camilleri and by the old Italian Republic President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi.

The frame affectionate and competent of the members of the family La Scala, is the guide more appropriate to view the charriots and listen to the history of arts and crafts, and to revive the socio-cultural environment of the wheelwright, a role that has now disappeared.
