Conca d’Oro, 1950

I recently read Dacia Maraini’s memoir “Bagheria.” In her book, the well-known Italian writer details returning to Bagheria after World War II. She describes in detail the natural beauty of the Conca d’Oro in the 1940s and 1950s before massive over-development changed the landscape. This photo was taken by my Uncle Stefano in June 1950.
