Please tell us if you have ever been to Sicily and why you are interested in joining this group.

I am about to make my 4th trip in less than 2 years

Do you speak Italian and/or Sicilian? If so, what level?

Yes. Intermediate.

Send us your favorite memory, story or thought about Sicily please.

Not enough room here. Festa di Sant'Agata in Catania, hiking on Levanzo, wandering alone at Morgantina, fish, fish, fish, meeting photographer Giuseppe Leone, riding into Sciacca on my bicycle and on and on...

What would you like to learn most about Sicily and its food? What are your interests?

Food. I want to taste everything that is typical. I love the traditional music and have been learning and listening.

Have you tasted the food & wine of Sicily? What do you know about it?

We drink a lot of red wine and a lot of Sicilian nero d'avola. Etna rosso is interesting, too but not very available here.


I would like to be among fellow people who are passionate about Sicily and do what I can to promote its wonderful and very special attributes.
