«LE DONNE - women and the city, SICILY» is a different journey by car and foot around Sicily where the author writes about 25 women of today and years ago, including godesses and mythical figures .

Enza la Fauci grows grapes and produces wine with a view to the Strait of Messina where the Sirens in the past tried to drag the sailors into the depths with their ships. Marilia Di Giovanni runs a small bookstore which has become The Meeting Place in Ortygia in the south. The photographer Letizia Bataglia in Palermo shows the author pictures of the internationally known documentation of mafia assassinations and also gives answers to what no other journalist has ever asked her.

Their interesting lives add to the readers knowledge of Sicily where the author finds the women strong, hardworking and very friendly, and seem to have solid networks that strengthen the communities they are part of.

You will find history, pictures of famous Italian paiters, portraits of the women and photographic glimpses of the island.
