Sicily : a piece of art as symbol of integration among people

Islamic art Museum at Zisa Palace- Palermo

This is a superb piece that shows
 how multicultural, multilingual was Sicily in the XII century
still at the times of Roger II's

A marble funeral inscription for a Christian lady 
written in four different languages
including their  different calendars dating systems :

Arabic-Jewish in the uppe part
Latin on the left
Greek on thew right
 Arabic in the lower part

That's why I like to say we feel Mediterranean........

I dedicate it
 as a symbol of tollerance 
and integration among people

 to all the thousands  men, women and children
looking for a new and better life 
coming as illegal immigrants in Sicily
