The finds discovered range over the Greco-Roman period to Byzantine age, go through Arabs, Normans and Spanish domination and arrive at the Italian Risorgimento.
In the historical texts Milazzo is present from the 9th-8th century B.C., after the Greco-Roman period, became with the Byzantines one of the first episcopal seats of Sicily. c Through the centuries, several historical personalities, like Frederick II and Charles d’Anjou, were present in Milazzo.
Furthermore, Homer's 'Odyssey' says that Milazzo was the land where Odysseus (Ulysses) was shipwrecked and met the mythic Cyclops Polyphemus. In fact ancient historians placed the town's foundation in 716 B.C. in a region so rich and temperate that it was called the "Sun Peninsula."
Milazzo, as it was in antiquity, is the gateway port to the "seven sisters," the Aeolian Islands, named for Aeolus, god of winds, nymphs and satyrs. A natural paradise rich in history and art.
