The artwork in the Sicilian culture

By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation

The sea, as much as the Sun, the Prickly pears, the Temples, Etna … is an eternal source of inspiration for all Sicilians. A Sicilian without the sea really feels like a fish out of water. The sea is wide horizons, sense of depth, openness … all things that a Sicilian carries inside and of which he cannot do without.
