Rescue the Redemptore!
Apr 2017 • Friends
A wonderful vista which gives you the opportunity to look over the town of Caltanissetta, in the lea of a towering 'risen' Christ. Thirty years ago this was a place where locals would come to share a coffee, a prossecco, an apperetif.

Now your company will be stray dogs, weeds, a ramshackle trailer occassionally selling coffee, and five towering telecommunications pylons which supply the surrounding area with their broadband and mobile reception.

Their location immediately facing the gaze of the Redemptore is a travesty - and a silent appalling note of the failure of the local council here to protect what once was a stunning location to enjoy the view of Caltanisetta's urban progress in the heart of the mountains of central Sicily.

Still worth driving up to, past the fading glory of early twentieth century villas, with wysteria languidly draped over walls and railings in the bright Sicilian sunshine. Bring your own refreshment, and enjoy the view - with your back firmly to the Pylons!
