New York, NYUSA

I spent a morning in Palermo -- going to the dentist. I've been an avid fan of Pirandello from my childhood and more recently of Andrea Camilleri. Another "connection" is the Triskeles: My family comes from a triangular island, the Isle of Man, which uses the same three-legged symbol as Sicily.
Not much beyond a few phrases from opera libretti
Sicily was home to Archimedes, probably the greatest genius of the ancient world.
Though I don't absolutely worship my stomach I do enjoy good food and drink, so Sicilian food and wine is a subject I'm interested in learning about.
Andrea Camilleri incorporates mouth-watering descriptions of Sicilian food in his stories and has spiked my interest in the topic.

My first Meetup with this group was a "Peak Experience" and its website is a wonderful resource in itself.
