SICILY – AN ISLAND FOR EVERYONE?
Returning for his fourth Presidential Lecture. Dr Scott, has chosen to talk to us about in ‘Sicily: An Island for Everyone?’
Michael examines the history of Sicily as a cultural melting pot from the Neolithic period to the modern day. From treading grapes in an ancient wine press, to reciting Shakespeare in an ancient Greek theatre, and from excavating child bones from a possible human sacrifice, to exploring the underground Arab aqueducts of Palermo, Michael travelled across the length and breadth of this extraordinary island. During his journey, he formulated two questions: what does it really mean to be Sicilian today; and what can we learn from Sicily in the 21st century?
So what is Sicily’s answer, given its long experience? We hope you will join us in discovering the answer when our President returns
