Sicily & Sicilians is a project that wants to enhance and disseminate Sicilian excellence in the rest of Italy and abroad and also your project wants to provide our tourists new ways of entertainment and, at the same time to inform them about our beauties. What do you think it can be done to spread them also outside our land?

Everyone has to do his part and we try to do it as we know: by creating APPs and information systems that have the goal of enhancing Sicilian excellence in the rest of Italy and abroad:
