THE STORY BEHIND THE SICILY LOVER PROJECT
We are Rosella and Gianca, two native proud Sicilians with a strong passion for our beloved island.
We own a dynamic tour company which helps people enjoy amazing experiences in Sicily.
Most of our clients have a Sicilian background and we help them discover their ancestral homeland from the vantage point of true Sicilians!
Over the years we have been working to spread love for Sicily and this gave birth to one of the biggest communities of Sicily Lovers in the planet.
Our recurring live events on Facebook and broadcasts on YouTube showcase the best of Sicily and help people of Sicilian origin to maintain a connection to the homeland of their ancestors alive and strong.
Today there are more than 17,000 Sicily Lovers following us from the United States, Canada, Australia and many other countries around the world.
By virtue of our past experiences we launched the first and the biggest 100% handmade in Sicily online store named “SICILY LOVER”.
The Sicily Lover project’s goal is to help the most talented native artisans preserve ancient Sicilian traditions and crafts that are disappearing.
We have been thinking about this challenging project for a long time.
Then the Covid-19 pandemic hit. It crippled the economy and paralyzed our tourism activities.
We were all faced with something foreign and unexpected.
But we were determined not to let anything stop us from sharing our cherished island with other proud Sicily Lovers.
We needed to re-invent ourselves bringing fresh new ideas and solutions so that people may continue to enjoy the best that Sicily has to offer.
These difficult times have deprived us from many things but have given us so much more: this new project dedicated to our beautiful family of Sicily Lovers around the world!
