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

Saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and cloves — combined with dried fruit and tomatoes — make this Sicilian dish incredibly flavorful. But what you really want to get right is the chicken crust.

Recipes

This wintry pork ragù from the Sicilian province of Enna gets its richness from chocolate, but a touch of cinnamon and a dash of dessert wine make it extra aromatic.

Hello,

Good morning

I am looking for someone to help me with tracing my Sicilian ancestors (Messina, circa 1815!) and I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with professional genealogists in the area and could possibly recommend anyone please?

Many thanks

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?
