The landscape of Monti di Trapani through the water mills

You are here

The documentary illustrates the water mills in the landscape around Calatafimi-Segesta (TP), in particular along the river Kaggera. The video can be ideally divided in three parts: an introduction to the phisical characteristics of the area and the hydraulic network, an in-depth look at the water mill located in Contrada Arancio, mentionned in the texts dating from the 1393, and a visit to an active company at Castelvetrano, specialised in traditional flour production from native ancient grain seeds.

On the same subject we also produced an educational resource available here.
