Panarea welcomes another billionaire: Bill Ackman, the Wall Street wizard

Panarea, the small island in the Aeolian archipelago measuring 3.4 square kilometers, continues to attract some of the world’s wealthiest individuals. After Jeff Bezos, it was the turn of Bill Ackman, one of Wall Street’s “sharks” with a net worth of $3.7 billion. He arrived with his family and friends and, like Bezos and Robert De Niro, dined at the restaurant “Da Pina” owned by Giovanna and Antonio Mandarano. Ackman is the founder and CEO of Pershing Square Capital Management. Vittorio Brumotti, the bike trial champion and TV host, also visited the nearby island of Lipari. In Quattropani, the highest part of Panarea with a terrace overlooking Salina, Filicudi, and Alicudi, he stopped at “Za Peppa” with two friends for a fortified aperitif. Panarea has become increasingly popular among the international jet set, and it is not surprising that the cost of houses and villas has skyrocketed in recent years, starting from a minimum of 2 million euros. Salina and Stromboli follow closely in popularity within the archipelago, while the rest of the islands have a noticeable gap. Panarea is surrounded by hundreds of large and medium-sized yachts but lacks a tourist marina, which is also the case for the other Aeolian islands except for Santa Marina in Salina, where it already exists, and Malfa, where it is nearing completion. The approval of the port and harbor plan in Lipari, led by Mayor Riccardo Gullo, is still pending, leaving the island with an inadequate refuge marina in Pignataro, with its arm being damaged.
