“To Edvige, another Sicilian in exile”: Maria Rosa Cutrufelli in-scribes in her book Canto al deserto, the novel set in my hometown of Gela. My exile is geographical, like that of Maria Rosa, who left Sicily long ago and lives in Rome: For Sicilians, leaving the island is a form of migration and exile, even if one continues to live in Italy. We leave and take Sicily with us.
