Welcome to everybody in the Heart of Sicily

Inside the great portion of triangular earth situated  in the center of the Mediterranean Sea and that once was called Trinacria, there are so many Sicilies. There is Arab-Norman Sicily of Palermo, that prehistoric in the zone of Syracuse, that Hellenistic of Agrigento. In the center of Sicily, in the territory with the tallest chief town in Italy, Enna, the Roman heart of our Island palpitates,  a heart which pulsation can clearly be felt in the very famous Roman Villa del Casale in Piazza Armerina.
