Our Spring 2014 course on Sicily covered three thousand years of history and culture (Greek, Roman Arab, Norman Spanish and Italian). We read Virgil, Cicero, Ibn Hawkal, Al-Idrisi, Verga, Pirandello, Sciascia, Maraini... We watched The Leopard, Nuovomondo and much more.
We worked hard, and had a lot of fun.
Now we are ready to visit the places we talked about during a long Massachusetts winter.
After a very long day of traveling we made it to Palermo.
