“The history of Sicily and its civilization is extraordinarily stratified. Studying the archeology of Sicily means approaching the history of a territory in which Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks and Romans, to cite only the most famous cultures and populations, have given rise to seasons of civilization of prodigious richness and great moments in universal history. It is therefore with great pleasure and conviction that the Istituto Italiano di Cultura at São Paulo supports the initiative of University of San Paolo to hold an international symposium on the archeology of Sicily, so that interest in knowledge and deepening with respect to a past so rich in suggestions, contradictions and teachings keeps always alive” (Michele Gialdroni – Director of Istituto Italiano di Cultura in São Paulo)
