Marzamemi

Marzamemi, or 'marsà al-ḥamāma', (bay of turtle doves), as the Arabs had baptized the place, when they still lived here is a Sicilian fishing village dating back to the seventeenth century and a place already known at the time of Greek domination on the site. Set on a slab of rock overlooking the Ionian Sea and geographically located between Pachino a (South) and Noto a (North), in the south-eastern part of the Sicilian island, the small village has long been well known to the national chronicles as a tourist center for summer vacationers and public figures of national and international fame. And yet the "marsà al-ḥamāma" that I prefer is the one that, far from the summer clamors, in seasons less attractive to speculation, outside the margins of seasonal business offers the visitor as well as a beautiful lady a little 'old, nostalgic and decadent as only a non-summer afternoon can give, like the Venice of "Anonymous Venetian" or as the Normandy of "A man and a woman".
