The varied provenance of the settlers and the need to found a place from scratch perhaps explain the enterprising spirit of the people of Vittoria, who in three centuries achieved an extraordinary overall development, mainly thanks to the agricultural economy, traditionally based on vine growing and on the industrial activities connected with it, though now there is up-to-date greenhouse production. Because of its modernity, Vittoria does not have many artistic monuments of great historic value. However, it stands out for its urban layout and for the variety of styles characterising some buildings. One should see, for example, the Renaissance style of the inner courtyard of Palazzo Pavia and the Gothic style of Palazzo Traina. In Piazza del Popolo stands the municipal theatre, a splendid bijou in neo-classical style.
