Another hard day at the office

Egadi Islands were a real surprise for me, as big and unexpected t0 leave me speechless.

We had great time here with Ray, also because it is already the end of the summer and the huge crowd populating these islands in the summer is all gone.

Walking trough the shadowed street of Marettimo I found engraved on a wall 3 quotes in sicilian dialect, which perfectly describes the "connection" of these islands with the sea.

"Quannu lu suli all'orizzonti mori e tuttu taci, senti un'armunia di'ntornu 'ntornu chi duna a lu cori paci, ristoru, gioia e puisia". - when the sun on the horizon dies and everything is silent, feel around that harmony that gives to the heart, peace, relief, joy and poetry.

"La vita 'nata sta isola è biata. Cu li so casi bianchi e  li biddizzi: lu piscaturi di vita luttata aspetta di lumari ricchizzi". -life born on this island is blessed. With its white houses and its beauties, the fisherman with his hard-fought life waits for riches from the sea.

"Marettamu, di Egadi Regina, terra di sonni si, terra d'amuri, isola d'oro, parla si divina lu marinaru è lu tò canturi. - Marettimo, Queen of Egadis, land of rest you are, land of love, island of gold, speak, be divine, the sailor is your cantor.




"Marettamu, di Egadi Regina, terra di sonni si, terra d'amuri, isola d'oro, parla si divina lu marinaru è lu tò canturi. - Marettimo, Queen of Egadis, land of rest you are, land of love, island of gold, speack, be divine, the sailor is your cantor.
