Villa Alliata Cardillo, Palermo

It was originally a seventeenth-century baglio that in the course of the eighteenth century was transformed into a residential villa at the behest of the new owner: the Marquis Domenico Cardillo.
The construction was completed by his son Agostino who at his death, in the 1815, left his son Antonio the finished and already surrounded by a large garden. Only half of the property passes to the Alliata in the 1870 when Emanuela Cardillo, daughter of Antonio, marries Pasquale Alliata di Villafranca, while the other half of the villa remains with her sister Adelaide Cardillo, married Cloos. After 126 years the current owner, Stefania Alliata Lodetti managed to reunite the old property respecting its original structure. Once the identity of the villa has been restored, the building renovation, coordinated by the architect. Rosario Busardò, took place in a philological key.

The villa is home to the Centro Piana dei Colli, which is therefore a rare example in Sicily of a happy marriage between art and entrepreneurship and as an experiment in private investment in the arts and cultural tourism sector. Today, this innovative space bases its cultural identity on the encounter between the multimediality of the exhibition layout and the historical-artistic resources of the exhibition container. The main floor, consisting of an enfilade of six halls that can accommodate a large number of people. The late Liberty style floral decorations and majolica flooring were created according to a philological restoration; in the remaining rooms to cover the floors, antique oak planks were chosen.

Its auditorium layout and the podium with conference table, together with the innovative audio-video technology systems, allow the realization of high quality and professional conference events. The neutrality of its spaces makes it functional and adaptable to different types of event and set-up.

The two large terraces overlook the private park of the villa, paved with white and blue majolica according to the seventeenth century model, are crowned by a limestone balustrade. They offer a pleasant view of the surrounding landscape that characterizes the whole Piana dei Colli that goes from Monte Cuccio to Mondello.
