Description:

Little has been produced about the cultural or historic relevance of Sicily. The most invaded place on the planet, the three-sided island rivals Greece and Egypt as a primary source for Western ideas. Sicily: Land of Love and Strife takes the viewer to a place more fascinating and more diverse than any other Italian region. This journey demonstrates that fewer places on the planet compare to Sicily for a story of spectacular beauty, epic human struggle, depth and diversity of culture, philosophic insights, and historic sites. Because of the island’s great natural abundance and its strategic location in the Mediterranean—at the crossroads of Europe, Africa, and Asia—ownership of this rugged and fertile terrain has been contested for millennia. But except for its crime, Sicily has gone unexplored. The island’s association with the Mafia, so deeply entrenched in popular consciousness, has obscured a more rounded and accurate depiction of its history and culture.

Quotes:

…certainly the most exotic place in Europe…, Veronica Hughes Grigoli, , author of The Dangerously Truthful Travel Guide to Sicily

Like a great travel book…you never know what will appear next., Christopher Bram, , author of Gods and Monsters
