Origins[ edit ] Alcamo was founded in by the Muslim commander al-Kamuk after whom it is probably namedthough other sources date its origin to about The first document mentioning Alcamo is dating back toin a paper written by the Berber geographer Idrisi who was given this task by Roger II of Sicily  in order to get a collection of geographic maps.
From a distance longer than an Arab mile, the writer describes the position of Alcamo viewed from the Castle of Calatubo visible even today from the town territory and defines it as a "manzil", that is a hamlet or a group of houses with rich soil and a flourishing market.
In this period the famous poet Ciullo or Cielo d'Alcamo was born. The town was surrounded by defensive embattled walls provided with four gates: During this period, the town was divided into four-quarters, each one associated with the name of the main church in that area: The division between these quarters was coincident with the main streets of the town, that are the present Corso 6 Aprile and Via Rossotti and its continuation via dei Baroni Emanuele di San Giuseppe  called incorrectly "Via Barone di San Giuseppe" .
Inin coincidence with the visit of the emperor Charles Vcoming back from Tunisiathe old Porta Trapani was closed and four gates were opened: The Sanctuary of Madonna of Miracles During the 16th century there was a development in education in Alcamo because of the construction of new schools and the activity of expert teachers, in particular the poet and scholar Sebastiano Bagolino — Map of Alcamo in a painting of During the 18th century, pestilence and popular rebellions occurred in Alcamo again.
On 6 AprilStefano and Giuseppe Triolo let the Italian Tricolour wave on the town hall,  creating groups of volunteers in order to help Giuseppe Garibaldi in the battle of Calatafimi and from Alcamo some dictatorial edicts on Victor Emmanuel II 's behalf were issued. Some time later Francesco Crispi prepared the Constitution for the lands set free.
Further to this event, Corso Imperiale was named Corso 6 Aprile, in memory of 6 April, in which the volunteers started to be enlisted in Alcamo. Among the most important people of this period we have to remind Don Giuseppe Rizzoa priest who founded the bank called "Cassa Rurale e Artigiana Don Rizzo" In about five hundred people died because of Spanish flu  and in the Second World War citizens from Alcamo died or were lost.
On 18 Decemberbecause of the economic and social discomfort, the citizens raised up, occupied the Town Hall and put its archives on fire. At about the end of the s and the beginning of the s there was a bloody Mafia war between the clan Greco related to the Rimi family and the members of the emergent Mafia of Corleoneled by the boss Vincenzo Milazzo in the territory of Alcamo.
Just for this reason the Greco family represented an obstacle: The war bathed the town in blood for about five years and provoked tens of victims. The new Corleone 's Mafia prevailed, but the cost to be paid was very high, because a lot of members of this clan died. During the same period, in which there were armed clashes between the Mafia families, at contrada Virgini in Alcamo, they discovered the biggest heroin refinery in Sicily.
The Church of Jesus Christ the Redeemer While the crimes of the Mafia went on and tens of people disappeared as victims of " lupara bianca ",  there was a religious revival which led to the birth of several Catholic associations such as Rinnovamento nello Spirito Santo, Neocatechumenal Way and the movement of Comunione e Liberazione.
Thanks also to the intervention of Fondo Ambiente Italianoit is expected the restoration of the Castle of Calatubo ; its chapel and the path leading to the castle have already been cleaned by the volunteers' association "Salviamo il Castello di Calatubo" in The interest in environment is also associated with that in the territory, in fact, after the adhesion to the initiative "Rifiuti Zero" Zero RubbishAlcamo has been considered an example to be followed for the results got between and in the field of waste sorting raccolta differenziata.
