The Sicily region
Sicily is one of the regions of Southern Italy and in addition to being the southernmost region of Italy is also the largest island of our country. And 'the Tyrrhenian Sea to the north, to the east by the Ionian Sea, the Sea of ??Sicily in the south. Its provinces are Palermo (regional capital), Agrigento, Caltanissetta, Catania, Enna, Messina, Ragusa, Siracusa and Trapani. The highest point of Mount Etna in Sicily is an active volcano that is located in the northeast of the island. They are part of Sicily some islands and archipelagos such as the Aeolian Islands, the Egadi Islands, the Pelagie, Pantelleria and Ustica.
The ancient name of this region was derived from three Trinakria spikes, such as those that delimit the region. The emblem of Sicily is the head of Medusa which come off that run three-legged symbol of the three forms taken by the sun (god of spring, summer and winter), the actual name of the island is probably derived from "fertile", but did not replace the old symbol with Medusa. The land of Sicily has been visited over the centuries by Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans. Each of these civilizations left their mark on the culture, traditions and art of this beautiful region. Do, indeed, Greek temples, Roman mosaics, buildings Arabs, Norman structures that remember and bear witness to the history and culture of Sicily.
It is the largest of the satellite islands of Sicily, with an area of ??83 square kilometers and is also the westernmost. It is located 120 km from Sicily and 70 from the Tunisian coast. Its territory is of volcanic origin. It has many manifestations of secondary volcanism, mostly warm waters and fumes that demonstrate the persistence of the volcano. The last eruption occurred in 1891, on a slope in the northwestern part of the underground economy. The maximum relief said Big Mountain is 836 meters above sea level. While not the most southern point of Italy, a record that belongs to Lampedusa and from which distinguishes it also being geographically in Europe, however, is the territory of the country closest to Africa, from which it is separated only 70 km (Cape Bon in Tunisia is usually visible to the naked eye from the island)
Pantelleria is an island that is characterized by the extraordinary singularity of its landscape, in which natural elements (chess-boards of lava flows, coves and cliffs) are added typical artifacts created by humans to live: dry stone walls (with the function to use the existing stones, and containing reclaiming farmland and defining land ownership), Pantelleria gardens (typical cylindrical buildings in masonry lava stone with the dual function of reclaim land from the excess of stones and to protect citrus trees planted within the wind and salt), dammusi (rural buildings of lava stone, cubic, with arched openings to all sixth and white domed roofs) constructed to collect rainwater.
The scarcity of water is rainwater that is not conducive to the development of major vegetation zones. There grows a variety of spontaneous caper said of Pantelleria, known and appreciated all over the world, which today is also one of the main crops of the island. The Arabs introduced citrus trees grown with care and protected from the wind. The volcanic soil favors the growth of vines particularly suitable for producing wines with good gradation; very popular Moscato and Passito di Pantelleria obtained with the use of the famous and exclusive zibibbo left to dry in the sun and specially protected by the salt and moisture in "stinnituri".
The fauna of Pantelleria includes among other things, the presence of a typical breed of horses called precisely the original Donkey of Pantelleria, and until recently was at risk of extinction, today, thanks to an initiative of the Company's Forest Demaniale region of Sicily with the Departmental Forest Inspectorate of Trapani implementation at the pilot farm of St. Matthew Erice was developed the project to rebuild the breed Pantesca in purity by the end of 2003 will also collaborates the Experimental Institute for Livestock Sicily. Today include more than 50 pieces. The presence of this donkey is known since the time of Roman rule the island.
Widespread until a few years ago and very strong, the ass of Pantelleria could carry heavy loads along the trails of the island. In the past this breed represented an important resource for the island, and his mules were also much appreciated abroad.
