Thursday 29 August 2019


The Kingdom in the Sun: Classical & Medieval Sicily

Sicily has been both a gateway and a crossroads attracting a long line of invaders from Greeks, Romans and Arabs to the Normans, Spanish and Italians. This has left a legacy of great cultural richness and variety.

SESSION 1: Greek and Phoenician Sicily from the 8th century BC to the 4th century BC.

SESSION 2: Roman and Arab Sicily with a focus on the Villa Casale in Piazza Armeria.

SESSION 3: Norman and Byzantine Sicily including the 6,000 sq. metres of mosaics in  the cathedral of Monreale
