Val di Noto
The Sicilian “Valley of Food”set amidst architecture, shopping and UNESCO World heritage sites.
The other face of Sicily, the possible Sicily, the kingdom of kingdoms. The black and white Sicily of Giuseppe Leone’s photography, the dazzling candor of its Baroque palaces and the shade of its ancient carob trees. Prosperous Sicily, custodian of her beauty, refractory to speculation and abuse. Sicily’s food valley is a constellation of ‘starred’restaurants, a great number of oils, cheeses to be put out on show – literally – so many that the consorsium of safeguarding and evaluation, Corfilac, is creating the first ‘cacioteca’ (cheese shop) in Italy. We are in Val di Noto, the southern most tip of Trinacria, the Baroque treasure trove consecrated in 2002 as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
