Abstract: The Sicilian town of Pachino was founded in 1760 by Gaetano and Vincenzo Starrabba, the ‘Principi di Giardinelli’, on what was originally malaria-infested marshland. The concession was given to the Prince of Giardinelli by King Ferdinand IV through a decree dated May 26, 1756. The building of the new town was subject to the following conditions: that the town was to be built at least two miles away from the sea, that it was to comprise at least 40 families and that the new inhabitants had to be Catholics originating from Greece, Illiria or Albania. This meant that originally Maltese citizens were not intended to be among the families that were to populate the new town.
