I’ve always been curious about going to Sicily. Italians are outgoing,
their food is great, their beaches amazing and all the “mafia” story sounded
tempting enough for me to visit and photograph the island.
First thing that comes to my mind when somebody says Sicily is a church,
usually abandoned. Sicily is full of churches, many of them are closed or being
repaired. Most walls are covered by graffiti cursing but as they are written in
Italian, they are an art work to my eyes. The aged population gathers in every
park around a fountain to watch people go by and to talk. They talk a lot, and
the sound and rhythm of the Italian language is music to my ears; but the best
thing is looking from across the road to all the gestures they do when talking…
Sicily is an opera stage! Specially if you go to a fish market early in the
morning, where everybody is screaming at each other making all this huge
gestures as characters of an opera.
I hope you enjoy this photographs!
