A face of Sicily you would never expect in a bucolic tour to discover the ancient Borgo Fazio. Built in 1939, it is one of about 80 small settlements of farmhouses that between the 1920s and 1960s were provided to develop Sicily’s agriculture. They were divided into three different types by housing capacity and built around a small central square around which stood the Carabinieri station, an electric cabinet, a bakery, a tobacconist's store, a grocery shop and a school, making them in fact independent settlements. Unfortunately, today almost all of these rural villages are abandoned, and their condition offers interesting food for thought, also in view of recovering this entire heritage. It would be great to imagine the creation of a tourist route uniting all the existing settlements.
