SICILY DMC – PANTELLERIA SIKELIA

SICILY DMC – PANTELLERIA: a holiday far from the madding crowd on one of Sicily’s minor islands   SICILY DMC – PANTELLERIA A wild and peaceful land at the heart of the Mediterranean, offering African-hued sunsets and unforgettable starlit nights: welcome to Pantelleria, a beautiful and intriguing place, born around 300,000 years ago, whose volcanic origins are reflected still today in its colours and its secrets. Pantelleria is part of Sicily, but the island actually lies much closer to Africa than Italy. It is precisely this privileged position (Homer called it “the navel of the Mediterranean”) which gives the island its look and its culture rich in contrasts, a place of Arabic forms and typical scents of Southern Italy. The island stands out, amongst other things, for its rugged coastline and the green countryside overhanging the sea. This isn’t a place of sandy beaches, but rather one of small coves with crystal clear waters, spectacular and mysterious caves and a descent to the sea over smooth rocks. Pantelleria’s volcanic origins are also to thank for its authentic open air spa facilities: from the hot springs of Gadir and the Benikulà Cave natural sauna to the mud of the Lago di Venere, every corner of Pantelleria […]

Sicily DMC Incentives: PASQUA IN SICILIA: le celebrazioni più belle da non perdere!

Sicily DMC Incentives: PASQUA IN SICILIA  /La Pasqua in Sicilia è la ricorrenza che fin dai tempi più antichi e più di ogni altra, ha suscitato in tutto il territorio dell’isola, una intensa partecipazione popolare. Nel corso della Settimana Santa è un susseguirsi di rappresentazioni e processioni che hanno come intento quello della rievocazione e commemorazione della Passione, Morte e Resurrezione di Gesù Cristo. I cortei che si snodano per le vie delle città sono formati dalle confraternite delle arti e dei mestieri nei loro caratteristici antichi costumi, seguite dal clero con i paramenti quaresimali, nonché da simulacri di Gesù morto, della Madre sua in dolore e dagli altri personaggi che contornano la Passione di Cristo. Ma più spesso queste rappresentazioni sono impersonate dai fedeli che raffigurano con grande pathos i tristi momenti del Calvario di Gesù. La presenza attiva della gente è sentita a tal punto che, anche a livello emotivo, i sentimenti del dolore per la Morte prima e poi della gioia per la Resurrezione del Redentore, appaiono autentici per la teatralità che assumono nei vari passaggi del ciclo pasquale.

Several tourists have reportedly been injured as Mount Etna erupted for the third time in just under three weeks, spitting molten lava nearly 650 feet into the sky above Sicily. A BBC journalist and camera crew were caught in the huge explosion on Thursday. ‘Lava flow mixed with steam – caused huge explosion – group pelted with boiling rocks and steam,’ the BBC’s global science correspondent, Rebecca Morelle, tweeted. She reported an estimated eight people suffered head injuries, burns, cuts and bruises. ‘An amazing 78 year old lady was very close – but safely got away,’ Ms Morelle tweeted. ‘Incident could have been worse – explosions like this have killed – but seems minor injuries for now. ‘BBC team all OK – some cuts/ bruises and burns. Very shaken though – it was extremely scary. ‘Running down a mountain pelted by rocks, dodging burning boulders and boiling steam – not an experience I ever ever want to repeat,’ she added. Italian news reports say scientists investigating the recent eruptions were injured when magma spewing from the volcano hit snow, causing an explosion. The Catania operation center of Italy’s volcanology institute confirmed Thursday that members of a team taking measurements on […]
