Inspired By Siculiana Marina’s Beach In Sicily

How does one describe one of the most beautiful beaches in Sicily? Words aren’t always sufficient.

If it’s any indication of just how magnificent Siculiana Marina is, Sicilian guitarist Francesco Buzzurro composed an entire album of songs inspired by it called Il Quinto Elemento (The Fifth Element). When I heard him perform pieces from it last year in Palermo, I was emotional! His soundtrack enhanced my love of this already magical place.

Even better was days later when my husband and I were invited to dinner at his home and together we waxed poetic about it. Check out Francesco’s world class compositions and virtuosity at
