Comitini, (Agrigento)

Comitini, the land of sulfur and Tricolor, was born as an urban agglomeration at the foot of Church of Santa Maria di Altomonte and Baronial Palace, inhabited by peasants dedicated to the cultivation of the fief. In the early nineteenth century Comitini climbed to the headlines for the rediscovery of the zolfifera mining activity and in a short time 70 mines were activated on its territory, for a total of about 10.000 workers. Luigi Pirandello spent part of his youth in Comitini, where his parents were owners of a sulfur mine, and from this small town he was inspired by the writing of some novels: Ciaula discovers the moon and The smoke. To visit: the churches and Ecomuseo della Zolfara.

We are sorry but we are no able to show nothing of beautiful.
