“The place is Gela, facing Africa. And you will go there as you can, you will eat wherever you can, it is important to tell you about the city that is three in one: a hell, a purgatory, a tiny besieged paradise” Gesualdo Bufalino from “La luce e il lutto”.

Understanding Sicily in fact for a Sicilian means understanding himself, absolving himself or condemning himself.

I still don’t understand it.
