New York, NYUSA
December 23, 2016
I have traveled every inch of the island I think. I created this group b/c New York needed an organization to celebrate Sicily's food, wine and culture. I really created this group b/c I felt "homesick" when I was away from Sicily. My dream project Soul of Sicily was the inspiration for this club in so many ways, as I wanted to create a similar kind of feeling to that of my programs in Noto, Sicily.
Si! Fluent Italian. Some Sicilian too... I'm always learning more. Northern Italians often tell me that I speak Italian like their grandparents do, b/c I've picked up some of the intonation and vocabulary of traditional Southern Sicilians over the years.
listening to Sicilians exchange gelato recipes and talk about capers while traveling on the scenic train ride from Messina to Naples.
I would like to know what you are all most curious about and how many of you have traveled there. I enjoy Italian language, food photography, writing and lots more!
Si! I have devoted a decade of my life to studying it, and working and traveling throughout Sicily to learn as much as possible about it!
