Built at the end of the 1950’s, in an area that represents the typical Sicilian clay hills, borgo Baccarato was born to offer services to the rural population living in neighboring territories. In fact, there were constructed buildings such as: church, school, medical office, post office, municipal delegation, shop and accomodations for workers. These services worked only for a few years managed by the local community and funded by the ERAS (Ente per la Riforma Agraria in Sicilia).
Despite upgrading projects, the village is abandoned, especially since the church and other buildings were declared inaccessible, although some services such as the restaurant worked until 2010.
Liotrum is a project born from the passion for photography and exploration. They are three Sicilians, lifelong friends with the same interest: to rediscover time through forgotten, abandoned, destroyed places, in one word, urban exploration. Last but not least Cristiano La Mantia is our instagram leader.
