"In my family we have the sea in our DNA. My uncles were ship commanders, as well as my grandfather and my great-grandfather. The father of my great-grandfather was a sailor. The history of my family interweaves with that of the township: the grandfather of Aunt Lina had a piece of Mount Gallo, my grandfather Peppino Denaro was the Mayor delegate and a dialectal poet.
During our walk I will let you discover a Mondello that is not bather booths and sunscreens. But also historic sailing clubs and magnificent Liberty villas, ancient games on the beach, plants and lavish gardens. At the end of the trip I will receive you at Denaro’s Villa where I grew up and still live. There I will tell you when Uncle Ino gave birth to a baby girl in the middle of the sea and when "our" ship, the New Ustica, sank”.
This is how Luciana Zarini, community guide in Mondello, tells about his ties with the most authentic and elegant seaside village of Palermo still crowded summer destination of bathers and vacationers.
