The Sicilian poet Renzino Barbera lived for 86 years between 1923 and 2009. During this time he woke up every morning as if he were born, and in the evening he lay down as if he were to die. “So I lived much more than anybody else“, he explained this sophisticated attitude. We don’t know if today’s Sicilians are consciously following the guidance of their artist predecessor, but it’s sure: they can live! We were convinced of this during our 10 day trip to the southeast region of Europe’s seventh largest island. From Taormina through Syracuse to Ragusa, visiting the filming locations of the Godfather film trilogy, the Sicilian chocolate capital and the rocks of Odysseus. In the first step, as a result of this journey I present a slice of Taormina life in 11 photos + 1 music to you.
