Purely indicative georeferencing. Redefine !!!

Going up the Vallone della Pernice, just after the bridge of the Scillato Aqueduct about two km from the sea, at the foot of Cozzo Pernice formerly Rocca Incallisi, there is a small cave that Saverio Ciofalo baptized Di Nuovo, from the name of the country guard who had accompanied. The scholar carried out an excavation there in 1876 with very modest results. Vaufrey, who studied the materials collected by Ciofalo, asserts that “the industry preserved in the Museum of Termini was of the type already found in the Grotta Natale without ceramics (Epigravettiano, V. Caccamo). Currently in the Museum of Termini there are 27 tools of flint and quartzite of gravettiana facies, a spindle, a vague of terracotta necklace, a bone awl.
