Forza d'Agro (Sicily)

Forza d'Agrò is a town in the Metropolitan City of Messina, Sicily. It is on the lower peak of a small mountain, while on the higher peak that overlooks the town are the remains of a Norman castle. Much of the town consists of traditional buildings and stone paved lanes that are impassable by car. Due to this lack of modernization, Forza d'Agrò has featured as the backdrop in a number of films, such as The Godfather trilogy. The village offers a wonderful medieval atmosphere with its narrow streets, charming churches and aristocratic buildings. The most important monuments of the village are the Church of San Francesco; the Church of Santissima Annunziata, built in 1707 on the ruins of an ancient building dating back to the 15th century; the Church of Santissima Trinità, built in the 15th century, includes the charming Convent of S.Agostino and the Norman Castle, built in 1595, which is placed in a wonderful location with a stunning panoramas.

Hello everyone- I have just purchased my first home in Modica but it is completely unfurnished. Kitchen needs to be installed, furniture and appliances, etc. would anyone have a recommendation for an English speaking interior decorator?

@alongianna asks:

I have a house in Sicily which I inherited from my parents and it is need of some work. When I contacted a contractor for a quotation I was given a price but told that there are government grants available which would pay 60/70% of the repairs.

@scottkeat asks:

Does anyone know how can I register to pay my property taxes electronically if I do not have any Italian identification documents? I have a Codice Fiscale, of course. But I am not a citizen, nor have a long-stay visa at this time.
