  • As a lover of literature, lying around, I couldn't resist the temptation to visit this museum. Hot day and no other tourists, we then had a chance to enjoy comfortable this blast from the past. These are two rooms, one dedicated to films of Visconti, the earth shakes, the other that reconstructs the typical House of fishermen at the time of the cane. Introduced by brief explanation of the girl behind the counter, despite the emotion I was a bit disappointed ... the exhibits are really interesting but for example newspaper articles about the movie, or the letters of the cane hanging on the wall, unreadable because you fail to approach being bundled to the ground objects. Instead of staying behind the counter (since there was none and the environment reduced the permit), a direct explanation would have been more appreciated as well as improved the layout of the interesting memorabilia. Fantastic the idea of the Museum, you could really make the experience a little more attractive with ... sometimes history is not enough if you do not know make fascinating ...

  • How nice to visit the small and modest House of padron Ntoni and his family of fishermen, that House that we all had to study in school and that many times we tried to imagine. And what satisfaction listen to the guides so motivated, passionate people who manage to evoke so well our sleepy reminiscences, making them almost tangible there, near us and turn them into lasting memories. Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations!

  • Last day of holiday in Acitrezza ... we decide to go and visit "La casa del Nespolo" ... two rooms full of life lived, intense as the soft light and smells that fill it. Miss was committed to "tell" of rod to a pair of female visitors. Beckons us to come in and invites us to join them. Since that time I have experienced a range of emotions that are mixed with the words of Rita Foti, our competent and enthusiastic Guide ... I re-discovered, along with my husband i Malavoglia, dreaded in high school ... and I discovered a new and unknown Verga I come to study thanks to the advice received from Rita. "Reverie" and "stories from the castle of Trezza.". will be my next reading. What a beautiful experience! Still feel the emotion giving rise to the words of this extraordinary expert of the rod. How passionate these Sicilians ... how nice staying there. Thanks and sincere congratulations

  • Passing from Aci Trezza couldn't go and visit the famous "Casa del Nespolo" of which it is said in the novel of "reluctantly" by Giovanni Verga, one of the pillars of Italian literature. The House is very small and consists of a small courtyard that includes a medlar tree and two other rooms, in addition to the ticket office. The room on the left collects photographs, posters and various testimonies of the cinematic work of Luchino Visconti: "the earth shakes", filmed in Acitrezza in 1947 with a cast of actors selected from the residents of the small fishing village. The right room houses testimonies of the world of fishermen including a collection of ancient tools and objects of everyday life of fishermen dating back to the late 19th century. Tickets cost 1.50 euro per person. The House Museum should be, in my opinion, more enhanced by the town of Aci real.
