    Alfio Caruso



Author: Alfio Caruso

There is perhaps nowhere in Italy that has contributed more to the country’s rich culture than Sicily, a region that has produced renowned thinkers, writers, and politicians, and the world’s most notorious criminals. This book tells the stories of fascinating, Sicilian figures: Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II, author Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, journalist Telesio Interlandi, Nobel laureate Luigi Pirandello, physicist Ettore Majorana, police officer Giuseppe Peri, the powerful Lanza di Trabia family, and politician Vito Guarrasi. Caruso recounts the invaluable role that Sicily has played in Italian political and social history.
