Our storyteller, with eyes glistening for lost love, tells us about Colapesce. Colapesce, fisherman descendent of fishermen, but so madly in love with the daughter of the king that he accepted a challenge to retrieve a ring thrown in the deepest recesses of the sea. He does not hesitate to dive in the deep abyss when a fish first and a gorgonian later show him the way amongst reefs of coral and underwater caves. Colapesce finds the the ring, but on the way back to the surface he notices that one of the columns holding the island is cracking. He does not hesitate and the love for his land and people is stronger than the earthily love. Colapesce | Panoramica Bagno | Hotel-B&B | Piazza Mazzini-Centro-Catania Colapesce is still there, holding, with his shoulders, one of the columns that supports the island Trinacria, today called Sicily, where his princess stares towards the deep abyss of the sea waiting for him to raise from the waters. Full of allegories and symbols, the art room journeys around a light fitting installation that represents the art of fishing. This sculpture in the shape of a fish enables us to enter the first marine grotto where our hero dived, guided by the Blue Bird, another exquisite piece of ceramic from Caltagirone. The bed located in a proscenium echoing of driftwood and seabeds, bedside lamps memories of shipwrecks, and colours and fabrics reminding us the Sicilian sunset. Enter the bathroom while guided by the light of the moon, a lampshade of a visual fullness that from the ante bathroom opens up onto a glass partition with a gorgonian pattern and concrete tiles that over the decades have resisted the wearing of the salty air, and amongst the flow of waterfall showers you reach the slim but powerful column that opens the arms to support the island.
