The ancestor’s journey

As usual every week Sicilians wrote to us from all over the world asking us to go in search of their roots, their ancestors. And above all they ask us to go looking for their relatives here in Sicily. And as usual, our cultural department mobilizes to make their dream come true and organize their journey in search of the roots.
