Acitrezza


Acitrezza is known throughout Italy as the setting for Giovanni Verga 's famous book 'The House by the Medlar Tree" (I Malavoglia), the first volume of a literary cycle dedicated to life's losers. The book, considered to be a masterpiece of Italian realism, tells the tale of an Acitrezza fishing family who were condemned to a life of poverty. Acitrezza is also linked to ancient mythology. In the epic tale of Ulysses, the Faraglioni of Acitrezza were used by the Cyclops, blinded by the hero, in his failing attempt to strike Ulysses. Today, as well as being a holiday destination, Acitrezza proudly maintains its fishing traditions.
