History of Milazzo, excursions in Milazzo Print

Milazzo in the quaternary one not was, but toward 400.000 to.C. the promontory emerged, as for enchantment, from the sea, just as the Goddess Afrodite, to succession it seems of telluric movements up to reach an elevation of 88 mt from the level of the waters.
The Milazzo's plain land was formed around 140.000 to.C.... Man appears to Milazzo in 4.500 to.C.; it is an evolved man, that knows how to sail and he lives to the Cape Milazzo, in the extreme point of the Promontory; it acquires ossidiana to Lipari and factory utensils. Other human installations were had around Castle and Plain, but here floods among 3.500 and 2.500 swept everything.
To Vaccarella, instead, rests of a Civilization of the Bronze are found again, dated 1850 to.C. and so also other rests still in the Castle, where the civilizations since that time put the dead bodies in pythos, that are big vases, on which they set a protection of masonry. On ages of the iron appear the Siculis, that burn the corpses and they set their ashes in terracotta containers. They succeed in dealing even with Greece, from where they import vases that still find in their necropolises. But when the Greek populations in Messina, after Rometta and Monforte invade and they turn it into one fortitude of theirs. Milazzo, after this disaster it doesn't lift more up to when they don't come from us the Arabs.
In the period of the Roman domination, Milazzo makes part of the city of Messina; they enjoy some political rights of Roman Citizens and therefore they are exempt from the payment of the tithe. Also it's important remembering that in the waters of Milazzo, around actual Refinery, Caio Duilio defeated the Carthaginian ones. And subsequently Mark Agrippa won in sour battle the fleet of Sixth Pompeos.
In the Arabic period it is remembered of another battle between Arabs and Byzantines, and then the Arabs were definitely conquered Milazzo and they built the Castle, that understood the Male with a great tower and also eight towers.
In the period of Norman domination the Castle was modified by Riccardo Lentini and kept under good conditions, as from a document of Fred II of Sweden. In the Aragonese period, under Giacomo and Fred II d Aragon Milazzo was the center of the two Sovereigns to govern her/it. In this period tells of a marvelous Park, that of King Giacomo (hope that is reconstructed for giving way to the milazzesis to breathe a good air and to enjoy some coolness of the trees!). Of pole in branch in 1456 the Castle was strengthened with the Surrounded one of Boundaries Spanish.
Finally in the period Garibaldino was had the battle of Milazzo among Garibaldi and the Borbonis, commanded from the general Wood. From here the Borbonis they lost Sicily and..Milazzo.
