Sicula sugnu

Sicula sugnu: a voyage into my Sicily with the same surprise and curiosity as if Eva came here now!!!



about me

"Although I don't drink any wine and my English is better than my Sicilian dialect (as my best friend says!), Sicula sugnu that is I deeply feel Sicilian"



I was born  on St. Lucia’s day in Siracusa, in the latest   part of South Europe , here  I live and since 1994 I’ve been working mostly as an official tourist guide in the provinces of Siracusa and Ragusa, but  working sometimes  as  an English teacher and interpreter ,as well.

I fell in love with my job long time ago when for the first time I followed a guided tour in Greece. I enjoyed those days and  that guide who with passion, simplicity  and politeness showed all his love for his country and his pleasure in telling stories.

I was 17 years old and I think it was then   when I decided to  be a guide "at home". 
I'm lucky because I do what I love here , in my country, everyday meeting people of different nationalities and sharing  the magic of my Sicily with them.

I love  photography,cooking, painting,travelling,reading and whatever can meet  my endless curiosity about life, because it ìs the basic ingredient in  everything I do.

Through my job experience I’ve been  learning how to look at and describe my people and places with the same surprise and curiosity that I think Eva proved when she started to explore the world with new eyes. So, today,like her, I'm  ready to be amazed together with my tourists about Sicily again and again with passion and spontaneity.
