A Cultural HistoryBook - 2014
Long before it became an Italian offshore island, Sicily was the land in the center of the Mediterranean where the great civilizations of Europe and Northern Africa met. Sicily today is familiar and unfamiliar, modernized and unchanging. Visitors will find in an out-of-the-way town an Argonese castle, will stumble across a Norman church by the side of a lesser-travelled road, will see red Muslim-style domes over a Christian shrine, will find a Baroque church of breathtaking beauty in a village, will catch a glimpse from the motorway of a solitary Greek temple on the horizon and will happen on the celebrations of the patron-saint of a run-down district of a city, and will stop and wonder.
