Casa di cura Ignazio Attardi

"Casa di cura Ignazio Attardi" is the private clinic in Santo Stefano Quisquina founded by Libero Attardi and dedicated to his grandfather Ignazio Attardi, who was a doctor too.

The place where it was built used to be an old railway station where Libero Attardi began to operate in bad conditions before the new clinic was founded.

One of the most important surgery was a stretch aorta replacement performed by Libero Attardi and others four physicians in the old railway station in 1963.1

The new clinic was officially inaugurated in 1970. In its entrance hall Libero Attardi's bust can be seen.
