Photographer's Note

Prizzi is a hill town of the Palermo province, (about 80 km. from Palermo city), standing 966 m. on a hill in proximity to the Prizzi Mount in the upper valley of the River Sosio, with a fine view over the Sosio and Vicaria valleys.
The present town is of Norman origin and counts nearly 7,000 inhabitants. Its narrow streets, alleys and stairways reveal a typical medieval layout.
It is bordered by the two cities of Corleone and Palazzo Adriano (the last, used as the scene of the famous film "Cinema Paradisso" who won an "Oscar" in Hollywood as the best foreign language film in 1989).
When you arrive to the village of Prizzi, you can see a beautiful view of the crowded houses with its roofs, as you see in the photo.
