Baccarato’s village, built for territory’s service

By July 17, 2018August 28th, 2018No Comments

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).

In the following years, Borgo Baccarato suffered abusive occupations and disputes.

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.
