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 volcano … 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 cannot do without.

"Art makes us dream and transmit emotions, improves us, stimulates us, makes us optimistic and less lonely, gives us balance. Beauty will save us from despair"
The Governance also suggests
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.
