This course is based on the film Sicily: Land of Love & Strife. Little has been produced about the cultural or historic relevance of Sicily. Sicily is more fascinating and diverse than other Italian regions and few places compare to Sicily for a story of spectacular beauty, epic human struggle, depth and diversity of culture, philosophic insights and historic sites. Because of the island’s great natural abundance and its strategic location in the Mediterranean, at the crossroads of Europe, Africa and Asia, ownership of this rugged and fertile terrain has been contested for millennia. As the most invaded place on the planet, Sicily rivals Greece and Egypt as a primary source for Western ideas. But for crime, Sicily has gone largely unexplored.
