Sicily has a great central position in the Mediterranean. For centuries this has made it also an ideal place for the integration of Mediterranean culture. Just think of the Carthaginian, Greek and Roman colonizations. When usages and customs of the Siculi, Elimi and of the Sicani blended with those of the peoples who came from beyond the sea. Its traditions and customs never fail to fascinate. Its rarities and uses and the places of its myths enrapture each and every traveler.

Visiting Sicily Enriches the Soul
