Casteldaccia

1
Casteldaccia is a town of 11,303 inhabitants and comune in the province of Palermo, Sicily, southern Italy, founded by Marquis Longarini. It is the seat of the Vini Corvo wine producer, and the Tomasello Pasta factory.Origin of the nameOne hypothesis on the origin of its name is that is comes from the union of two words: castello and accia .ArchitectureThe original town-planning is irregular, characterized by narrow streets and typical houses of the Sicilian tradition. The town center is constituted by the Matrice Square, surrounded by the town church, the façade of the castle of the Dukes of Salaparuta, a symbol of the past feudal splendor, as well as a small chapel called La chiesetta.In the late 20th century, Casteldaccia had a chaotic urban development: real estate speculation has irreparably damaged the territory. For example, the town has no public garden or a playground for children.Casteldaccia’s railway station belongs on the lines Palermo-Messina, Palermo-Agrigento and Palermo-Catania.EconomyThe village has no large commercial activities. Most inhabitants commute to Bagheria and Palermo to carry out their work. Once most of the population was constituted by farmers. Currently agriculture hardly exists any longer, since most of farm lands were declared construable.The fame of the town is mostly tied to the family of the Dukes of Salaparuta and in particular to Giuseppe Alliata Moncada who, in 1824, started to bottle up a white wine produced with the Inzolia grapes coming from his property in Corvo di Salaparuta’s district. The first seat of production was Alliata Moncada's Villa Valguarnera in the town of Bagheria, a few kilometers away from Casteldaccia. Thus the first bottled Sicilian wine was born, as well as the Sicilian wine-producing industry most famous all over the world.
