The "Muntagna" dominates a landscape that, seen from various angles, thrills one's gaze with a view of a thousand facets. Snowy pinnacles, lava expanses, thick woods. Villages cling to the mountain slopes like children to their mother's skirts. Fire and ice graze against but never undermine one another. In this part of Sicily, Mother Nature is powerful and benevolent: she has been shaping all things everywhere for ages, endowing humans with unique experiences and gastronomic delights.
