In a way, Sicily needs no introduction at all. This is the mezzogiorno, Italy's sultry south, more famous for its gangsters and its corruption than it is for its glamour. And yet, this is also an island whose history of multiple occupations (the island was ruled by the Byzantines, the Normans, a Tunisian Emirate and the kings of Spain, among many others) has resulted in a glorious mash-up of cultural influences, architectural styles and culinary obsessions.
