Castello di Solanto – July 8, 2020

The Gala Dinner and the Awards Ceremony will be held at the Castello di Solanto one of Sicily’s last great stately homes, located about 20 km east from Palermo.

The Castle, which soars sheer above the sea, was originally built during the Norman era (between years 1000-1140). Its position along the Sicily coast made it a desirable location for aristocratic Sicilian families. In the 18th century a dwelling had been added to the tower, the earliest part of the building, originally built as a Norman bulwark to protect the adjacent tuna-fishing facility, thus transforming the original fortified site into an elegant home.

Today the Castle hosts important corporate and social events.
