Few places in the world have experienced such an intense and eventful history as Sicily. It has been rocked by revolts and power struggles and rejoiced in great splendor and freedoms. Over thousands of years this small island has been a crossroads for many peoples, religions and cultures. Its melting-pot of influences has created a unique spirit of 'Sicilian-ness'. Through the evocative photographs of Melo Minnella, Sicily Art, History and Culture captures the elusive spirit of Sicily, its inhabitants and its landscape. It offers a sweeping account of the island, from ancient history to the present day.
