Myths in Sicily of Riccardo Francaviglia - Splen
Only great adventures and true heroes can turn fantasy into reality.
Thus the boulders thrown by Polyphemus become the stacks of Aci Trezza, the shepherd Aci takes on the appearance of the river that gives its name to nine places at the foot of Etna, the mythical king Aeolus lives and reigns on the Aeolian islands and Orion founds the city of Messina.

The monsters, the capricious gods, the giants, the innocent shepherds, the Cyclops, the sorceresses and the heroes who once inhabited it revive in this first collection composed of seven suggestive mythological tales.
