From architectural to the gastronomic art, from religious festivals to the golden beaches. Make your own photo with all that who, for you, represents Sicily… and help us to tell this earth!

In Italian language the matching word for prickly pear is “Fico” which means also a person with a beautiful aspect. So, for this editorial, we have choosen the name “The land of prickly pear” not only because they are a typical Sicilian fruit, but also because Sicily is a land where travelers leave a piece of their soul and, above all, where “the beautiful” is in the smiles and in the faces of the people, in every path, in every corner!

The most stunning photos will be posted on our facebook page and may be used for marketing and communication campaigns aimed at promoting the territory.
