Artist's Description

Castellammare_Sicily, mediterranean island
the island where I was born

Castellammare del Golfo (Sicilian: Casteddammari) is a town and comune in the Trapani Province of Sicily.
The name is roughly translated “Sea- Fortress (castle (on the) sea) of the Gulf”, deriving from the medieval fortress in the harbor.
The body of water it sits upon also takes its name from the fortress, Golfo di Castellammare.

In ancient times, Castellammare had been the harbor of Segesta, one of the main towns of the Elymian people.

Fishing has been important in Castellammare del Golfo dating back to ancient times. Today the town’s economy continues to be based on fishing with the addition of tourism.

The town is noted, however, for having been the birthplace of many American Mafia figures, including Salvatore Maranzano, Stefano Magaddino, Joseph Ristuccia, Michael Monte and Joseph Bonanno.

From this name comes also the Castellamarese war, fought by Joe Masseria clan against Salvatore Maranzano clan for the leadership of the Italian Mafia in New York City.

Frank Stallone, the father of Sylvester Stallone, was also born here.
