Area: Central Sicily
The first historical information about the Raddusa fiefdom dates back to 1300. In 1530 the fiefdom was later annexed to the Paternò house , and in 1810 the Marquis Franceco Maria Paternò, obtained from the King of Sicily, Ferdinand III, the right to found a village of Raddusa where new settlers arrived, coming from all over the Caltagirone. Thanks to its flourishing sulfur industry Raddusa, in a short time, developed economically to the point of claiming administrative autonomy.
Today the village of Raddusa still preserves the rural atmosphere intact which lives on in its museums, in its countryside, in the its neighborhoods and, with its traditions and rites, during the famous Wheat Festival.
