A Table set “Italian Style” with a starched white linen tablecloths, Casarialto Petal glasses and Palm jug in a wonderful location with view

The white, ironed and starched linen tablecloth is a tribute to Donna Franca, wife of Ignazio Florio, who had wonderful banquets set up in this exact spot at the beginning of the last century. For the unforgettable parties that were held in the beautiful villa overlooking the sea, which the Florio dynasty  bought from the first owner, the Englishman Sir William Domville, the ladies wore Pucci and Dior dresses and sipped champagne in crystal goblets.
