TOTÒ BONELLI

While you are looking at the door, someone draws your attention by tapping you on your shoulder. When you turn around, a nice old man wants to talk to you:

Hi, I’m Totò Bonelli and the character on the door is my ancestor, Vincenzo Bonelli! Some say he was a hunter, others a saponaro, but it’s not important. What matters is that thanks to him finally Santa Rosalia was recognized and Palermo was saved! I want to tell you the story of my ancestor and show you the places where he lived.

Now I’ll give you an old map and I’ll be by your side. If you show that you have a good sense of direction, I will tell you everything I know about my ancestor’s life and I’ll show you some of the secrets of the Capo, the neighborhood where my family has lived since the time of Vincenzo.
