Portraits of Sicily: Three Natives and Their Stories
At Dream of Italy, we believe the people are the most important part of your travel experience and we profile through unique individuals who shine a light on Sicilian culture: a pastry chef who makes some of the island’s famous sweet confections, a native son who has strengthened his ties to the island and Sicily’s last donkey-cart painter.

Sicily’s character can be seen in its colorful, storied symbols, each one representing history, culture and resources. We explore everything from the popular trinicaria to Sicily’s famous towers and imposing volcano.
