The Mediterranean Itineraries Association has decided to enhance the Palazzo dei Marchesi Pottino in Petralia Soprana as an ideal place to shoot some scenes from the remake of the film “The Gattopardo”.

Antonella, as a historian of the palace and of the noble life of the late nineteenth century, will take you on a journey through time to make you discover the noble Sicily of the late nineteenth century.

Together with her you will discover the village of Petralia Soprana and the beautiful Palazzo dei Marchesi Pottino di Echifaldo perfectly preserved, inside and out, as in the time of “The Gattopardo”.

Antonella will select the extras for the famous dance scene.

Are you ready to pass the audition? Meeting at the “little square” in Petralia Soprana and don’t worry about enrolling in the casting, Antonella has everything ready for you!
