And ´City of Wine, because only and only here will you produce the eponymous dessert wine. And ´after Palermo, the second largest city in Western Sicily, and aspires to be almost one hundred years to become the provincial capital. It located on almost all the ruins of the ancient Punic city Lilybaeum, and hence the name "lilbetani" of its inhabitants. Lorenzo Carini is the first center-right mayor of the city since the Italian Constitution; Marsala, in fact, has always been governed by the left, particularly the Socialists in the 70s and 80s. For this reason, it has always been considered a stronghold of the Left.
In the 250 square km of extension has a rich cultural heritage and landscape. It aspires for decades to be the provincial capital. It built on the ruins of the ancient Lilybaeum, Carthaginian city, and its territory includes the regional nature reserve of the Islands of the Lagoon of Marsala.
Its foundation is closely linked with that of Mozia, one of the islands, founded in VIII BC, which was a major Phoenician city. Is the world capital of Archaeology Naval [citation needed], as in the Museum of Baglio Anselmi are guarded the remains of a Punic ship, unique archaeological find in the world of combat vessel; dating back to 241 BC, the year of the Punic Wars fought in front of the sea of ​​Lilybeo. During the first of the three Punic wars, he was besieged by the Romans and defended by the Punic commander Himilco. From here the historic siege of Lilybaeum, which prevailed just the Romans.
Currently, after decades of wild construction and careless administration of its assets, it is in progress the construction of the archaeological park or the excavation of a large area of ​​the city, has always guarded by the institutions but never excavated, which is the area where there was the ´ Danica Carthaginian city before, and then Roman, of Lilybaeum. Excavations were begun in the 70s with reinvenimento Roman insula. The 2000s are marking a turning point: not least the decumannus discoveries, the Venus Callipige of the second century and numerous traces of ancient civilizations (mortuaries, flooring, tools, remains of houses and streets). In particular, in 2007, in the excavation of St. John, the sixteenth floor of the church was found, and in the excavation adjacent to it, a collapsed column on a pavement of white marble. In all excavations of the area, the visible layers of earth are a mix of earth and clay pieces, vases, coins, and various signs of ancient civilizations.
