My emotion:

Mythology has always fascinated me. I studied the Greek one on "The Greek Myths" by Robert Graves, with its fantastic heroes but also characterized by very human strengths and weaknesses.

Sicily is steeped in Greek mythology and many mythological figures were born right here, such as those of Aretusa, Ciane, Daphnis, Erice, Galatea, Polifemo. 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 amazement in their eyes.
