Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean, one of the most beautiful places in the world, a place of sea and sun like its precious golden Saints, always desired and coveted, raped and possessed but never truly conquered, in the end always seduced and abandoned, Sicily is sour, occasionally acid and wild, disobedient and deceitful, indifferent and thoughtless, pampered, spiteful, arrogant, anarchic…But despite itself, it has a soft heart and a sharp brain and when you get up close and smile it opens wide its arms and hugs you.Sicily is thousands of years old, well trodden like its ancient roadways, wrinkled like its ancient rocks,but in its heart it is still a child that has not had the time and the chance to grow up. The course of its history has frequently been interrupted by other peoples, who have landed on its beautiful shores,besieged it and sacked it, or made it a half-forgotten appendix to their far off empire, often wiping out all signs of its civilisation so as to impose their own, or sometimes overlaying cultures in a gradual process that is then always interrupted by the sight of new sails threatening on the horizon...Ironically, or perhaps as a necessary psychological preparation for their destiny, nature has given Sicil- ians a sense of great insecurity and a short-sighted sense of resignation: earthquakes, cataclysms and eruptions have often reduced it to ruins over the centuries, burying all that man has made and creat- ed, swallowing up the past and claiming it back for the land that created it all.Ametaphor of the similarity between historical and natural events in Sicily is the destiny of its monu- ments and important buildings, which have been restored, demolished, rebuilt over the centuries,according to the whim of men and of nature, an expression of the longstanding lack of sense of iden- tity and continuity. With the annexation of Sicily, Italy undoubtedly acquired the valuable but difficult inheritance of an island suffering from chronic ills, marginal and far off. Indeed, Italy has largely aban- doned Sicily to its destiny, letting it become a slave to that form of violent underground government,that occult and pervasive power, which still today is proving to be the ‘enemy’of Sicily’s culture and development, blocking any sign of growth.
