Item description for Sicily: Nature, Culture and Traditions (Italy from Above) by Antonio Attini...

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.
Antonio Attini's renowned photography has appeared in America from the Air and Chicago from the Air, both published by White Star. Maria Cristina Castellucci is a professional journalist who specializes in tourism, history, travel, and culture in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe. She divides her time between Sicily and Denmark.

Reviews - What do customers think about Sicily: Nature, Culture and Traditions (Italy from Above)?

Not exactly what I was looking for.  Jun 28, 2008
It is a very nice book, but I was looking for something that went into the smaller towns ( where my family originated from )
It looks great on my coffee table !
Wonderful Book with Photos  May 17, 2008
This is the first book I have been able to see photos of a small town my grandmother came from, so it was special to me. It has lots of photos of smaller towns that most books do not even bother with. Great book, crisp photos and wonderful to see Sicily from the small towns to the largest of towns. This is a beautiful book.
