Sicily by Antonio Attini

Book Description

Sicily is a complex land of contrasts and unexpected juxtapositions. This handsome volume takes readers on a bird's-eye tour, showcasing, in the spectacular aerial photography for which White Star is renowned, the unique characteristics of the island. Readers explore eclectic architecture that reflects more than 30 centuries of history: Phoenician settlements, Greek temples, Roman amphitheaters, Norman Arab castles, and Argonese churches. Whisking us over vivid orange and lemon orchards, high above mountains and lush forests, and through the villages and cities of the island, "Sicily "presents a unique perspective of this island of contrasts and contradictions. Hundreds of colorful images convey the majesty of Europe's greatest natural wonder-Mt. Etna-and the vitality of cities such as Palermo, as well as the sleepy island towns.
