Alaimo selected 1181 proverbs from Pitrč's collection of 13,000 and translated each one from Sicilian into Italian. This allows the language student the opportunity to see the differences and similarities of the two languages.
Her collection is organized into 13 categories that vaguely correspond to the organization used in the original Pitrč collection. Within each category they are organized alphabetically. Additionally, each proverb is numbered, from 1 to 1181.
Alaimo has included a brief but useful bibliography.
If you're interested in the Sicilian proverbs as a way to gain some Sicilian cultural insight, this collection is a good one with which to start.
