Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and is one of the 20 regions of Italy. It is located South of the Italian Peninsula, and has a rich but unique culture, especially with regard to the arts, cuisine and literature. Its most prominent landmark is Mount Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe. The island has a typical Mediterranean climate, with mild winters and dry summers. Sicily became part of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861 and was given a special ‘autonomous region’ status in 1946 following the Second World War. Sicily has long been noted for its fertile soil, and its main agricultural products of wheat, citrons, oranges and lemons. Cattle and sheep are raised in the area, and chocolate and cheese productions are particularly important to the region. Fishing is a fundamental resource, and there are important tuna, sardine, swordfish and anchovy fisheries. Sicily is served by several ferry routes and cargo ports, and cruise ships dock on a regular basis. Mainland Sicily has several airports which serve numerous Italian and European destinations. There are hundreds of castles in Sicily, and 218 old watchtowers along the coast. The island has four Universities, including a specialist medicine and law university. The flag of Sicily is regarded as a region icon, having been first adopted in 1282. It is characterised by the presence of a ‘trinacria’ spiral in the centre, the winged head of Medusa, and three wheat ears. The spirals represent the three island points of Sicily. The most popular sport in the region is football, with some of the oldest clubs in Italy being from the island. The three most successful clubs on the island are Palermo, Catania and Messina, but they all haven’t won the Serie A.
The island’s history of producing a variety of noted cuisine and wines have resulted in Sicily being nicknamed God’s Kitchen. Every part of Sicily has a speciality, and the ingredients are usually rich in taste whilst remaining affordable to the public. Some of the famous Sicilian dishes are Cannoli, tube-shaped shells of fried pastry filled with a sweet filling, and Arancini di Riso, rice balls filled with cheese, fried in breadcrumbs. The capital of Sicily is Palermo, which was elected the European capital of street food by Forbes in 2015. Palermo is also home to the largest opera house in Italy, the Teatro Massimo, which features in a famous scene in The Godfather Part Three. Four fifths of Sicily is hills and mountains, and the island is separated from the mainland of Italy by just 1.5 miles of water. The Valley of the Temples is a beautiful, vast archaeological site with temples and ruins of Akragas city and is one of the most outstanding examples of Greater Greece art and architecture. The 10,922-foot active volcano Mount Etna offers a scenic train ride, ski runs, and treks, as well as a spectacular cable car to the crater. You can capture a breath-taking view of the island from Mount Etna, and it really is a sight to behold. The volcano located between the cities of Catania and Messina, above the convergent plate margin between the African and Eurasian plates. There are fantastic scuba diving, paddle boarding, sunbathing and water sports locations on the island, and multiple famous restaurants and eateries along the seafront. It is clear to see why the beautiful Italian island is top of many people’s lists when looking to move to Italy. It is packed full of history, stunning scenery, delicious food, and other beneficial factors, and we are proud to provide removals services to this region of Italy.
