The Sicily region
Sicily, the largest and most important of the Mediterranean islands (25,708km2), owed its ancient name Trinacria to its triangular shape. The modern name Sicilia is derived from that of its ancient inhabitants, the Sicels or Siculi. Physically it is a continuation of the chain of the Apennines on the one hand, and of the Atlas mountains on the other. But it appears that far from Sicily being joined at a comparatively recent epoch to Calabria, the Strait of Messina is actually narrower now than in former ages. The island is mountainous across the north and easth, with plateaux in the centre, lowering towards the south, and fertile coastal plains. Etna, the largest volcano in Europe, dominates the easth and much of the centre of Sicily. The island is notorious for its earthquakes. Fumarole, macalube, or diminutive mudvolcanoes, and thermal springs are of frequent occurrence. Within Sicilian waters are included many lesser islands: the Aeolian or Lipari Islands to the north; Ustica to the north-west; the Egadi to the west; and Pantelleria and the distant Pelagian Isles to the south west. Of the meagre rivers the largest are the Simeto, Salso, Belice, and Platari; most of the smaller streams are dry in summer.Sicily numbers 4,680,700 inhabitants. Palermo, the capital, is the principal town; Syracuse, Agrigento, Messina, Catania, Caltanissetta, Trapani, Enna, and Ragusa are provincial capitals.
The bulk of the population is devoted to agriculture. In the central uplands grain is the chief product, while the coastal regions are devoted to the culture of the vine, the olive, and fruit; the most characteristic product is the “agrumi”, i.e. oranges, lemons, tangerines, etc. Sicilian waters are rich in fish, especially in the Strait of Messina where upwards of 140 species are known, including unusual deepsea varieties. Wild flowers are particularly beautiful all over the island in spring.
He first contacts between Taormina and Greece were in 735 B.C. Later Dionysius the Old”, the tyrant ruler of Syracuse, besieged the area surrounding Monte Tauro as he wanted to conquer the plains. The inhabitants of this area managed to resist this brute force but not bureaucracy: in 392 B.C., thanks to an agreement with the Carthaginians, Dionysius managed to come into possession of the Mount.
