"Sicily is a land whose narration is inexhaustible, a "place of memory", as Vincenzo Consolo loved to call it, which in its memory assumes and frees meanings and allusions often as contrasting as profound, almost like Sicilian photographers - the line is long and illustrious - had decided to engage with the island a personal relationship, a space of foundation in which to agree a private, personal mediation, a confrontation to two.

"Sicily" by Massimo Gurciullo is part of the debate between new and old language, between a style that seems to have exhausted its exploration and therefore is looking for new protagonists to whom to entrust a new voice."
