This tiny village was built in 1895 on a rocky spur on the slopes of Mount Pisciacane, thanks to the purchase of 900 hectares of land by Baron Rosario La Lomia of Canicattì.
Tranquility and an ancient lifestyle characterize the small village of Santa Rita, which is made up of a few stone houses and a church, built by Baroness Rita Bordonaro La Lomia, behind which the view of the surrounding valleys opens up.
Five hundred people initially inhabited the village: only three families now remain, dedicated to agriculture, livestock farming and pastoralism, but Santa Rita, thanks to the industriousness of one of its inhabitants, Maurizio Spinello, hosts an excellent bakery: the Forno Santa Rita.
Here only ancient grains are used, taken from zero-kilometer organic farming, from which genuine products are obtained through natural leavening in demand throughout the island and beyond.
Thanks to this activity that acts as a driving force, a sort of rural tourism of experience (slow tourism) is also developing in the village, which aims to welcome those who wish to experience a glimpse of ancient and genuine life, typically rural Sicilian, far from the din of cities.
In addition, every last Sunday of the month the bakery organizes "Il cibo che unisce": a biologic fair in which biologic companies from Sicily participate.
It is a beautiful moment of conviviality, with music and theatrical performances, during which the village can host up to two thousand people.
The bakery also prepares pizzas and pasta and also sells to private individuals, but it is advisable to book the day before.
