Sicily is full of tunafactory which in the past represented one of the most important items of the regional economy. There are everywhere, from Palermo to Capo Passero.
Most of the factories are in a state of neglect. Some of these, however, have been recovered on the initiative of private individuals, changing their intended use and inaugurating a real second life. Dating back to 1789, the Tonnara di Sciacca is one of these.
It is one of the oldest in Sicily and today represents a wise example of recovery of an industrial archeology artefact on the coast.
