 Via Consolare, 105 - Bagheria (PA)

The villa Aragona Cutò , better known as Cutò Palace, is one of the large villas built in the early eighteenth century in Bagheria.
It was built in 1712 at the behest of Luigi Onofrio Naselli, prince of Aragon, on a project by architect Giuseppe Mariani. The Villa was designed to be the Prince's summer residence.
The villa has a massive quadrangular structure and is arranged over two floors. The entrance pediment has two allegorical statues, unfortunately mutilated today, placed inside its niches. Characteristic is the presence of a belvedere loggia used as a meeting place for the local nobility.
The villa has a large internal staircase that allows access to the noble floor, a feature that distinguishes it from the others summer residences characterized by external stairs. Originally the building had a large garden, which was lost following the construction of the railway station.
The villa now houses the Francesco Scaduto municipal library.
