With the mix of cultures and its location there is no question the people living on Sicily are Sicilian first and then Italian.  They've seen their share of "globalists" coming to "help."  A sicily vacation is a lovely journey into history, culture, and culinary traditions.  For more information about traveling to Italy visit ItalianTourism.us http://italiantourism.us/sicily-tours/

Islamic Isle? Sicily Tours are Vacations into Mediterranean History

Islamic Isle? Sicily Tours are Vacations into Mediterranean History | Sicily Vacations | Scoop.it
A band of Muslim raiders sacked Rome in 846 a.d., plundering the city’s churches and getting clean away with their loot. They had come from Palermo, in Sicily, which had been in Muslim hands for 15 years.
Motorino Man's insight:

Sicily vacations are a journey into history. With its famous early Greek Temples, to the Norman Church in Monreale, one may forget that between the Greeks and Byzantines and the Normans the island was invaded by Muslims who took Palermo and even Syracuse.
