The Sicily region: Sicily is the biggest island in the Mediterranean Sea, where many populations followed each other, like the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, who all left traces of their civilization.
Goethe himself affirmed that “to have seen Italy without seeing Sicily is not having seen Italy at all. Sicily is the key to everything”.
