"Modica and its heavenly sights" on the Financial Times

I just came accross an interesting article about Modica on the Financial Times wonderfully written by Dan Hofstadter.
The title of the article is Modica and its heavenly sights

In spite of heavy rain on the day, Modica charmed the author with its stunning Baroque architecture, its history, its food and chocolate, of course!

Dan Hofstadter writes: "Modica is in the wealthy south-eastern part of Sicily and these provinces are scarcely touched by endemic poverty or organised crime. It is an exceptionally handsome city traversed by a wide boulevard, actually a riverbed that was paved over in 1902, after a flood."
