Via Scaglia Luigi – In memory of the dreamer engineer

0
At the beginning of the last century, engineer Luigi Scaglia fell in love with this stretch of Palermo's coastline and thought that the small fishing village of Mondello had all the potential to become a wonderful place. He imagined he could create a beautiful seaside resort, dotted with Art Nouveau villas and prestigious clubs. However, technical difficulties and financial problems slowed him down and another company won the project. Some time later, when he saw the bathing establishment created by others, together with everything he had dreamed of creating, his sadness was unbearable and after a few years he took his own life. A street has been dedicated to him, right in the Mondello he loved so much.
