Imagine Sicily!
Bringing Hamilton and Racalmuto Together:
Sicily’s Sister City Tour

Join La RosaWorks and filmmaker Mark Spano, creator of Sicily: Land, of Love and Strife, on a quest to bring Sicily to life, for a community whose ancestral history is on the island. Combining a La RosaWorks tour with the filmmaker’s perspective will make for an enriching journey full of authentic Sicilian experiences and with a lot of local flavor. We will bring you home to Racalmuto and surprise you with the magic of Sicily.

Open to anyone looking to have fun enjoying unique and varied experiences, exploring their connection to Racalmuto and Sicily in general.

Join this 9 day customized tour to Sicily, full of experiences, history, wine, and food. Racalmuto will be the focus for a day. The group will be limited in size to ensure engaging and intimate experiences and to make our connections most meaningful.

From guides and locals, you will learn about Sicily’s historic past and what it is that makes the island so magical. You will also meet some of the Sicilian people, particularly in Racalmuto, but also the worlds of Sicilian wine and food, blending the old and modern worlds of Sicily.
