«Sicily is a magical place especially for us Northern Italians, who live in the fog and dream of the sea. Sicily is the place of art, gastronomy, the culture, unspoilt nature, but it is also a land of contradictions, speculation and oppression. It is the contrast that has always fascinated me in Sicily: past-present, beautiful-ugly, true-false, but this contrast so obvious assumes, for us that
we come from afar, a positive connotation, fascinating, almost that light, this splendid light that envelops everything, transform the island in a mysterious and beautiful enigma».
