Polizzi Generosa has ancient origins as evidenced by the finds found in its territory dating back to the IV-III century BC: some identify it with Athens Sicilian of which the historian Diodorus Siculus wrote.
Polizzi Generosa was then disputed by Byzantines, Arabs and Normans and, embellished by the peoples who dominated it, today boasts an extraordinary artistic heritage. At the end of the 15th century, due to its strategic position along some main communication routes, it was economically and culturally enriched: many works of artistic value, kept in the churches of the town, date back to this period.
