Is it possible to love the place where you were born so much to dedicate yourselves, decades of experience, your life’s work, and your time to it for free? It would seem so. The people below do just that.
In the strict sense they are the Splendid Sicily staff, however in reality they couldn’t do it without the contributions and participation of DOC Sicilians: etno-anthropologists, archaeologists, naturalists, scholars, mayors, writers…….

Thanks to everyone

P.S. thanks to all the people around the world who are contributing to support this awe-inspiring vision of Sicily.

The Cultural Department of Splendid Sicily is entitled to the memory of our illustrious member Sebastiano Tusa, supporter, friend, genuine man, kind islander and one of the greatest Sicilian archeologist ever, sadly died in a 2019 aircrash.
