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

please see above

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

my Italian is conversational but, my Sicilian fluent.

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

I remember being on the balcony of our house in Francofonte watching the red fumes spew out of Mt. Etna.

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

I am always fascinated by Sicily's culture , it's artists and writers such as Giuseppe di Lampedusa it's history and it's people.

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

I have been brought up on Sicilian food. I love to eat it as well as cook it.


I was born in Sicily and have spoken in Sicilian to the last surviver of my family; my mother who recently died. Now I have no one to speak Sicilian with. So, I am hoping to meet some Sicilian speaking amici so that I don't forget my mother tongue.

What franco p. is saying about this Meetup Group

anyone with any interest in anything Italian/Sicilian would surely enjoy this group and its activities
