What Sicily means to me

 

What Sicily means to me

by Carmela D’Amore

My name is Carmela D’Amore (Amato)
My paternal family migrated to Australia just after WW2..
They came with their suitcases filled with dreams and their story of their land Sicilia.


I heard all my life about Sicilia the towns, the people and the food.
What I didn’t realise was that my family sowed seeds of Sicilia in me..

They have all passed away but not the seeds that they planted in me.
I am the voice of my family today and Sicily is very much alive in me.
I have been able to share my passion with people all over the world.
This is what it means to be Sicilian my story to you..
