During the summer of 1997 I visited Sicily for some weeks.
During this stay in such a marvelous island, where my ancestors were born, I was spellbound by the beauties of those places, by the luxuriant vegetation, by the wonderful inlets, by the historical monuments and by the artworks that the cultures and the civilizations of all ages were able to create and preserve, so now we can admire'em.
And so I decided to return with these notes the trip I did to let everybody know Sicily; also the ones who never went in these places kissed by sun and sea.
