Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke got married to Italian actress Dajana Roncione over the weekend in Sicily. They started dating in 2017, two years after he separated from his wife Rachel Owen. The Ceremony took place at Villa Valguarnera in the town of Bagheria. Villa Valguarnera is one of the most interesting eighteenth-century villas in Bagheria, both for the architectural quality of the complex and its position in the Bagherese landscape. The villa was built by the Valguarnera princes and is still owned by their heirs, the Alliata di Villafranca princes.
