Literary Tour of Modica, city of Salvatore Quasimodo | Weekend in Italy

The Southeast of Sicily is a land full of history that can be discovered through museums and monuments, through its delicious scents and culinary experiences for those who want to taste it, and through its stunning and varied natural world. But beyond its bustling uniqueness, the southeast corner of Sicily shares with the rest of the island the art of hospitality.

Modica, along with Val di Noto, was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list for its historical city center rich in Baroque architecture, in 2002.

This historical, artistic, and literary itinerary explores the Baroque neighborhoods of the hometown of Nobel Prize winner Salvatore Quasimodo. A truly unique way to discover beautiful Modica - animated by poetry readings of the great master’s works (available in several languages!).
