In this tour, you will visit a private and historical Villa. The well-known dining-room of this villa is the only interior in the world entirely designed by Sir Frank Brangwyn, member of the Royal Academy of British Artists. He is one of the first decorators of Louis Confort Tiffany, and inventor, together with Gaudì, of the Art Nouveau. The small dining-room has hosted heads of state, politicians, artists and intellectuals, from the early 20th century to date. Today Casa Cuseni is enlisted in the Historic Homes Association, "Case della Memoria", a European network connecting the homes of the greatest artists, writers, and academics. The refined esoteric garden, with its botanical rarities, landed itself in the “Great Italian Gardens” list. The Villa has a long tradition of Sicilian cuisine, with the first owner, British artist Robert Kitson, who experienced some wonderful Sicilian cuisine with some English flavors.

And now you get to be a part of this great historical Sicilian legacy. Nino, well-renowned Chef, together with his brigade, will introduce the history of Sicily through its cuisine and will surely leave you spellbound.
