My Antique Sicilian Map
Jul 2019
My wife and daughter's family were on a two week tour of Italy and Sicily with a primary objective of doing genealogical research and enriching our family history. My father was born in Siracusa. We started our Sicilian journey in Palermo and one of the items I was seeking was an antique map of Sicily that showed some important towns where my relatives lived such as Pachino, Siracusa and Monterosso Almo. My daughter and son-in-law found Fecarotta on a walk when we weren't with them and they reported to me that this was the store that would have what I was looking for. When we visited the store we were not disappointed as they had many antique maps and the problem was which was the best one for us. The store staff, mostly family I believe, was very patient and a bit flexible on the price to make it affordable. I was shown a large reference book by an author who is considered an expert on the subject of antique maps and I was told that my map had been purchased from his collection. We were in a hurry that day and left without asking for a copy of the relevant pages of that book so we could keep the background material with the map for future reference. When I returned home I sent a request for copies of the relevant pages and received a prompt and positive response from Francesco Fecarotta. This is very good customer service. This is an upscale store in a more up-market section of Palermo and people looking for high-end antiques would do well to make sure they visit this store which also has custom made jewelry by family members.
