Dimora delle Balze


The 35sqm Poesie room sits at a privileged location overlooking the main court and features a small terrace perfect for soaking up the Sicilian sunshine. It resides in the portion of the compound that once housed the farmworkers and their families. In addition to their own sleeping quarters, this is where many of their daily tasks would have been completed, such as laundry, mending equipment and storing food. Featuring a vibrant mix of Sicilian art, crafts and antiques, as well as beautifully crafted contemporary furniture, the design of the room channels a captivating blend of old and new. Modern pieces include a wooden wardrobe by furniture designer Katrine Ahrens and a wooden daybed by Atmosphere d’Ailleurs, which can accommodate a third guest.

The Poesie room was inspired by the Italian poet Quasimodo, who was born in Modica in 1901 and later moved to Rome. He was an exponent of hermeticism, a type of poetry with a closed, deliberately complex style. In all his poems the presence of his native land, Sicily, is very strong: the island becomes the emblem of lost happiness and the poet toils with a sense of existential anguish due to the forced distance.
