Summary Seeking Sicily explores what lies behind the soul of the island's inhabitants. It touches on history, archaeology, food, the Mafia, and politics and looks to nineteenth- and twentieth-century Sicilian authors to plumb the islanders' so-called Sicilitudine. Seeking Sicily also looks to contemporary Sicilians who have never shaken off the influences of their forbears, who believed in the ancient gods and goddesses.
