The artwork in the Sicilian culture

By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation

Federico II of Svevia was King of Sicily from 1198 to 1250. At his court was born the Sicilian poetic school that gave, subsequently, the impulse for the origin of the Italian language. Frederick was nicknamed the Stupor Mundi (the wonder of the world) for his particularly remarkable culture and personality, multifaceted and fascinating, for better or for worse. In Sicily he built several beautiful castles, still in excellent condition, called castles Federiciani.

The objective of the Governance is both to safeguard the traditions and ancient crafts of the people of Sicily, and to sustain economically the Artisans and the Artists, both the real ethno-anthropologists of the country.
