This trip will allow students to discover different dimensions of the cultures of Sicily and explore some aspects of the layers of its history that have shaped the identity, architecture, food, language, and dialects of its inhabitants. Students will visit sites and meet with intellectuals from Palermo to better understand the roles and the characteristics of their city, its interaction with different Mediterranean cultures (especially Spanish and North African ones), the preserved Muslim-Normand style of many of its monuments, and the Renaissance influence on its evolution and its attachment to the rest of Italy.
