Corleone (Sicily)

Corleone is a town and comune in the Metropolitan City of Palermo, in Sicily. It is located in an inland area of the mountain, in the valley between the Rocca di Maschi, the Castello Soprano and the Castello Sottano. Corleone is located at 542 metres (1,778 ft) above sea level. The name of the town was used as the adopted surname of the main character in Mario Puzo's book and Francis Ford Coppola's film, The Godfather. The attractions of the town are the Chiesa Madre ("Mother Church"), dedicated to the 4th-century French bishop Saint Martin of Tours and the Chiesa dell'Addolorata. Along the road that connects Corleone with Ficuzza, following the old railway line connecting Palermo to San Carlo (now the bike path), is an old bridge where the Frattina River streams between the limestone rocks.

Recipes From Sicily


Almondy shortbread domes filled with custard and topped with icing, these classic Sicilian sweets were first created in the 1800s at the Monastero di Santa Maria dell Vergini in Palermo.

Whole pistachios and pistachio flour from Sicily will take these luscious cookies to new heights. 


Italy’s volcanic Aeolian Islands are known for their vibrant local cuisine. This tasty summer salad features some of the local specialties from capers to tuna.


A Sicilian classic! The outer sesame seed crunch of these cookies goes oh-so-well with the satisfying and moist lemony center.

@sharon_5 asks:

We have bought a house in Sicily and i have been told we need to replace our roof tiles because of a law coming in.  i have searched the internet and cant find a law, so wondered if anyone could help me.  Could it be that we have asbestos roof tiles?  

@lucydovi asks:

By succession law, we inherited a house. Our names are on the catasta. I want to sell my portion. Can I do so without getting my two sisters involved?

@zuri22780 asks:

Hi! This may be a strange question but I am looking for art classes or workshops in Italy specifically in the Catania or Palermo area of Sicily. I will be staying there for the month of January and I've had a hard time finding any schools that offer more short term classes or workshops.
