Dear All,

I am organising a Powwow in Catania, Sicily on October, 19th.

As Goethe said in A Journey to Italy: "Without seeing Sicily it is impossible to understand Italy - Sicily is the key to everything".

It would be great to welcome as many friends as possible from all over the world.

I would love to guide you through the baroque town centre and have lunch with you in a typical Sicilian restaurant.

I hope to see you in Catania.

Bad timing... :( Aug 18, 2007

I'll be backpacking around Italy October 9 through 29, but I'll make a quick trip to Portugal to attend a translation conference there from Oct. 18 through 20...

I'll probably work my way back to Italy through Spain, spending a day or so in Madrid and then Barcelona.

We'll definitely go to Sicily, though, 'cause that's where my husband's family comes from (great-grandparents left in the late 1880s to come to America). Maybe we can contact you for lunch or something and you can show us Catania through a local's point of view!

P.S.: Do you by any chance know any Lombardinos around there?

What an idea! I will surely come, I came last time in 2001 when I took my cat, a very Sicilian one

I have a friend there, and I really like Catania.
