Vita

Vita, Valley of the Murals is a small centre of a predominantly agricultural vocation, where fine wines and oils are produced. The town, founded in the early seventeenth century by baron Vito Sicomo from whom it took its name, presents vast cultivated fields. On the summit of mount Baronia, the wood of the same name stands, a large green space of important naturalistic interest. Here it is possible to go on pleasant excursions enjoying relaxing moments, in a healthy air and to enjoy splendid views over the surrounding countryside. Vita is also famous for its traditions: for San Giuseppe (Saint Joseph), votive altars are set up, decorated with symbolic bread; on Ascension day, the Madonna di Tagliavia is celebrated by the population with heartfelt festivities: from the decorated wagons which parade through the streets of the town in a magical and suggestive atmosphere, local products like wine, olives and cucciddati, characteristic hard round bread rolls are thrown.
