Floors.
They are tipically of sicilian architecture of XIX-XX century, to the '20s.


First room.


Second room, a dependance, maybe a Tea-room.


Third room, a living room.


Fourth room. Bedroom of the proprietary before the hospital. It is all handmade.

Ceilings.


Fourth room. Tipology at "cannizzu" (canes and plaster). Simple and elegant.


Second room, the Tea-room or "Chinese room". Ceiling at plane "cannizzu". In the center a great Dragon in wood, painted with the colors of the bronze, maybe held a towel lantern. Decorations imitate the Chinese or Japanese paints.


Particular. Like a School of Kano paint, a perfec imitation of Mt. Fuji, painted like the Mt. Etna.


A Geisha. Clothes, hair, moves decidedly Japaneses, face and color of skin are Sicilians.There are also the typical red signatures of painters during the Azuchi-Momoyama period (on the top of right side). A curiosity: the girl is holding a lamp that is an incorrect copy of the kanji 女性 (="Josei") or better than the Chinese 女子 (="Nuzei"), that means "Woman".

Zafferana Etnea (Province of Catania)

Coord. 37.692196 N, 15.106485 E

http://goo.gl/maps/iCUK

Zafferana Etnea is the town of Honey, was one of the Statio that occuped the roman way for the Mt. Etna. The modern town has a medioeval origin: built around the Great Priory of St. Jack (1387) with the name of Cella. The earthquake of 1693 destroied the town that was rebuilt in 1694 with the name of Zafarana (from the cultivar of Crocus sativus, the saffron, that in the past was the principal product of this area). Since 1826 is a Municipality, and it is famous for its artigianal honey and for the "Ottobrata", a festival of the month of october with degustation, market and so on.


Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie (1818).


Mother Church of Santa Maria della Provvidenza (1731).


An other view.


The Town Hall (XIX century).


A palace of XIX century.


Public garden (2010s).
