Mythology has always fascinated me. I studied the Greek one on Robert Graves' "The Greek Myths", with its fantastic heroes but also characterized by very human strengths and weaknesses.
Sicily is steeped in Greek mythology and many mythological figures are born right here, such as those of Arethusa, Ciane, Daphni, Erice, Galatea, Polyphemus. Fantastic and unreal stories that I loved hearing from my mother when I was a child and that I also told my children, to see the magical wonder in their eyes.
