Sicilian village festival: list of towns and treasures to discover

During the three weekends of the Borghi dei Tesori Roots Festival, there will be a lot to do: from May 10th to May 26th, Fridays will be mainly dedicated to schools, Saturdays and Sundays for everyone. The anticipation is high, as soon as the program was published on social media, it received thousands of shares and requests for information: 46 villages scattered like pieces of a Sicilian mosaic, about 500 sites, walks and experiences, and many young people involved in telling a completely unknown Sicily from Madonie to Nebrodi, from Sicani to Iblei, from one end of the island to the other.

Last year, for its third edition, the festival welcomed over 12,000 participants, and almost all visited multiple municipalities, with the most well-known and established ones acting as a catalyst for the others. Borghi dei Tesori Roots Fest is promoted by the Le Vie dei Tesori Foundation in collaboration with all the municipalities and with the Regional School Office, and is supported by IGT and the Sicilia Foundation.

The villages of this 2024 edition – coordinated by Michele Ruvolo with Giovanna Cirino, Marco Coico, Alessandra Fabretti, Alida Fragale – represent all nine Sicilian provinces: Alcara Li Fusi, Balestrate, Baucina, Bisacquino, Bompietro, Buccheri, Burgio, Calascibetta, Calatafimi Segesta, Caltabellotta, Cammarata, Camporeale, Centuripe, Cassaro, Chiusa Sclafani, Ciminna, Collesano, Contessa Entellina, Custonaci, Delia, Frazzanò, Gangi, Geraci Siculo, Giarratana, Giuliana, Isnello, Licodia Eubea, Mirto, Montelepre, Monterosso Almo, Montevago, Petralia Soprana, Petralia Sottana, Pettineo, Piedimonte Etneo, Pollina, Portopalo di Capo Passero, Prizzi, Sambuca di Sicilia, San Piero Patti, Santo Stefano Quisquina, Siculiana, Sutera, Trappeto, Valledolmo, Vallelunga Pratameno.

Three weekends following the well-established formula of Le Vie dei Tesori: the villages will open and animate the “family treasures”. And since taste is also a weapon of knowledge, practically every municipality has drawn from its most authentic culinary traditions to create experiences, show cooking, tastings, visits to vineyards, dairies, olive groves, even pastry shops and butchers. Information, sheets, and curiosities can be found on, as well as any other information about the festival. A constantly updated portal, to be consulted carefully in order to plan your itinerary.
