Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean, is just off the toe of Italy's boot. It has been a crossroads of cultures for 3,000 years, a history reflected in its diverse architecture, cuisine and ancient ruins. Palermo, the capital, offers colorful street life, bustling markets and Byzantine mosaics at the Cappella Palatina. On Sicily’s eastern edge is Mt. Etna, Europe’s highest active volcano.

Palermo markets are the most colorful in southern Italy. At these markets, all the bounty of Sicily -- fruits, vegetables, fish -- is elegantly displayed. Love how the markets are tucked in the city's medieval center. Places To Travel, Places To Visit, Italian Market, Traditional Market, Palermo Sicily, Southern Italy, Sicily Italy, Catania, Toscana

Sicilianità: seconda galleria

« [...] Vi è una Sicilia “babba”, cioè mite, fino a sembrare stupida; una Sicilia “sperta”, cioè furba, dedita alle più utilitarie pratiche della violenza e della frode. Vi è una Sicilia pigra, una frenetica; una che si estenua nell'angoscia della roba, una che recita la vita come un copione di carnevale; una, infine, che si sporge da un crinale di vento in un accesso di abbagliato delirio... Tante Sicilie, perché? Perché la Sicilia ha avuto la sorte ritrovarsi a far da cerniera nei secoli…
