A short distance from Palermo, just outside of Baucina, is an agriturismo on a country road called "Case Varisco." We have been so fortunate to come to know the owners, Bartolo and Cinzia, a beautiful Sicilian couple who take pride in simple pleasures and comfort there.
Bartolo's grandfather had worked and lived and farmed on this property, and all his tools have been kept and honored in a newly built museum on the property. This room was beautiful, filled with the amazing antique kitchen and farming tools, linen bedding, saddles, wine presses and so much more. As you can imagine, we were blown away by the texture, beauty and simplicity of everything in this space and couldn't wait to shoot it.
This is shot on a linen sack that was used to collect grapes for wine.
None of these are for sale but you can see them in person at Case Varisco just outside of Palermo on your next visit to Sicily.
