The word of the President Delegate Sicily Italy Delegation,

Giovanni Lorenzo Montemaggiore:

Dear friends, we are warming up the engines to prepare you an unforgettable, albeit short stay in Sicily.

For us, who live here, we take for granted what mother nature has given us, unlike those who come from outside and discover our beauties.

Every corner is surrounded by a historical, artistic and architectural imprint with different styles, left by all those peoples who, for various reasons, have inhabited Sicily since the dawn of time.

The taste, between the sweet and savory dishes of the Sicilian tradition (defined by UNESCO as an intangible asset of humanity) and the human contact with the people who over time maintain the atavistic pleasure of welcoming and a sense of hospitality, making the visitor feel like a temporary citizen.

With us, not only the eyes are filled by unique scenarios sublimated by the auditory and olfactory perceptions that every corner exudes and infuses, the musicality of those cultural heritage that capture the senses of connoisseurs, lovers of beauty, that wise travelers are able to taste.

In Sicily the 5 senses are satisfied, you will not be able to free yourself from the memory that leaves no room for other spaces, the shock that comes from it is so invasive that you fall in love with Sicily, you leave with the desire to return as soon as possible.

Anyone arriving in Sicily is overwhelmed by an aura of mystery and by scenarios of millenary value that leave the visitor breathless.

Do not miss the opportunity to live alongside us unforgettable International Meetings around Friendship, Sharing, Conviviality and Transmission.

We are waiting for you in Sicily!
