Sicily (Places and History) ebook

by Giuseppe Lazzaro Danzuso

To describe Sicily in a single book is certainly a bold task, because each of the four hundred and twenty municipalities in Italy's largest region has enough historical, architectural, cultural and natural heritage to merit its own book. As Goethe said, "A marvellous center where so many of the spokes of universal history converge".

Giuseppe Lazzaro Danzuso, Giullo Veggi, Giulio Veggi. Is it possible to describe Sicily in a single book? Even the smallest of the 420 municipalities of Italy's biggest region possesses such a richness of historic, cultural, architectural and natural heritage that it would deserve a book all of its own! This book takes a broad sweep of the island, drawing inspiration from the mountains, the traditions, the people and the legends.

The history of Sicily has been influenced by numerous ethnic groups. It has seen Sicily sometimes controlled by external powers - Phoenician and Carthaginian, Greek, Roman, Vandal and Ostrogoth, Byzantine Greek, Islamic, Norman, Aragonese and Spanish - but also experiencing important periods of independence, as under the indigenous Sicanians, Elymians and Sicels, and later as the County of Sicily and Kingdom of Sicily.

Early Modern History The period of 17th century was an unbridled time that was marked by political upheaval and social unrest.

When this colonization happened there was much changes that took place in the Greek culture especially in the dialects, traditions and religion of the Ancient Greek.

Mazzini's political activism met some success in Tuscany, Abruzzi, Sicily, Piedmont, and his native Liguria, especially among several military officers. Young Italy counted about 60,000 adherents in 1833, with branches in Genoa and other cities. A succession of failed attempts at promoting further uprisings in Sicily, Abruzzi, Tuscany, and Lombardy-Venetia discouraged Mazzini for a long period, which dragged on until 1840. He was also abandoned by Sidoli, who had returned to Italy to rejoin her children.
