THE STORY

XVII century, the farmhands of Linguaglossa wish to free themselves from the greed of Prince Bonanno who is exploiting them beyond all limits. Nadia is a young peasant woman who becomes a spokesman of the discontent to organize the rebellion against the hated exploiter.

So we have a deal! Nadia is waiting for you in Piazza Municipio in front of the Palazzo Comunale, at a signal we will break into the prince's rooms and drive him away once and for all.

Nadia is an expert nature guide of the territory of Linguaglossa.
In the role of a young farmhand girl of the time, she will start a rebellion against the infamous prince Bonanno. The farmers can redeem their land thanks to the sale of wine and vegetables at the most important farmhouse in the country. Thanks to this narrative system you can immerse yourself, together with Nadia and her friends, in the history of Linguaglossa, in its cultural and social roots, learn how to cultivate the vineyard and the land as Sicilian farmers have been doing for generations.
