|'Tonnara di Scopello', Sicily, Italy.|
There could be hundreds of reasons to chose Sicily as your holiday destination. Before going there in the next days, let me share the main reasons. Sicily is a washing machine of sea, sun and lot of culture (arts, music, literature, cuisine, and architecture and so on). You will be feeling clean and renewed after. Sicily has been shaped by waves of conquest and settlement by different peoples over 4,000 years. Since the 8th century BC, Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans all settled or invaded the island, lured by its fertile lands and strategic location. Over time, this series of conquests forged a cultural identity unlike any other. Discover an island with a cosmopolitan history and identity – a place where the unique mix of peoples gave rise to an extraordinary cultural flowering. The art and objects they produced are some of the most beautiful and important in the history of the Mediterranean.
