An old proverb says: Cu’ voli puisia, venga ‘n Sicilia. Who wants poetry should come to Sicily. There is nothing more poetic, and magical, than a wedding in Sicily, a wonderful region that blends sky, land, and sea together, a rugged, welcoming, opulent, and splendid land, full of contradictions that vanish before an incomparable beauty. In Palermo, a cultural melting pot where history whispers at every step, Villa Chiaramonte Bordonaro is an Art Nouveau jewel, created by the talented architect Ernesto Basile for the baron and senator of the Reign Gabriele Chiaramonte Bordonaro. It was built between 1893 and 1896, and tells in every room the history of the family that has been living here since the beginning. Therefore, it is a throbbing and lively place, which turns on imagination thanks to satin and damask, pieces of porcelain, silverware, valuable Murano chandeliers, in a sumptuous and noble atmosphere, ideal for memorable wedding receptions. The luxuriant Mediterranean vegetation and a triumph of palms surround the swimming pool, with great attention to details. In the sunset, the flickering light of candles reflects in the water, and illuminates an unforgettable event, offering the newlyweds and their guests a dreamlike atmosphere, which expands into the other spaces of the Villa that you can use during every season, thanks to the magical link of the Winter Garden, connected to the other rooms, which offers a beautiful view of the surrounding landscape. In the warm cosiness of this place, you can freely move with unique readiness. You can smell the fragrance of Sicily in the adornments, sumptuous spaces, elements of a glad horror vacui that does not leave any empty space, but rather the joyful fullness of the party and abundance that leave you confused and happy, like a kid on Christmas morning. The Red Hall, Blue Hall, and Green Hall represent a fascinating time travel to reveal unique treasures that tell the story of these walls, through the valuable fabric that covers them, and the narration develops through frescos, nineteenth-century pictures, and period furniture. The cosy and modern hall with parquet can be used to organize any type of events and hold a very high number of guests. In Villa Bordonaro, also the table is a protagonist, and it revives the splendour of the noble Sicilian tradition, thanks to Baroness Antonella Inglese’s and her personnel’s expertise: the perfect menu is the culmination of an extraordinary sensory experience, in an ideal and evocative place to live your dream in the pure and infinite light of Palermo.
