  14. Steven Khol says

    It is said from some books that Sicily is a poor place in Italy.

    This is why lots of sicilians move outside of Italy.

    Next year I maybe visit the place.

    Thank You, Rick Steve's

    You left out the conquest of Sicily by the Carthergians! The Carthegians were settlers originating in the Mediterranean coast of the Near East. They spoke Canaanite, a Semitic language since they were also Canaanites.   I met a Sicilian who told me that their ancestry from the Carthergians is a sticking point with Italians. He told me that many Italians don't consider Sicilians to be Italians because of their mixed heritage. After all Rome fought how many Punic Wars with the Carthergians?

  19. Careful Consumer says

    My neighbor is from Sicily and makes the best red sauce in the world!

  20. Immanuele Simonelli says

    Many things you said are wrong, there’s actually marble mountains near Palermo every time I go to San Vito lo capo near Palermo I see the marble mountain being cut into

  21. Immanuele Simonelli says

    And yea Sicily May be small compared to The states in America but there’s so much that I offers and a lot to do it’s a huge island with great culture

  22. Immanuele Simonelli says

    Mafia started just to protect themselves because many countries were taking over, all it was was protecting them selves had nothing to do with “crime”

  23. Grim Reaper says

    Seems like mosques has been completely destroyed

  24. phi hoang says

  25. T Kastrioti says

    for several hundred years the Albanians have lived in Sicily and before that Albania has given so much to the Romans with their own princes and warriors but nowhere do you say I did not hear a word in this video but the same is with wikpedia you do not say it is so you wanted hide part of the story it is sin and unfair

  26. Luigi Far says

  27. Jane Knowles says

  28. NorceCodine says

    The Norman king of Sicily was Roger II. His distant cousin William has conquered a much poorer island, called England.
