The Sicily it’s s always been linked to the sea by hystorical and cultural heritage. The sailor slang is frequently used in coastal cities to describe events and situations not directly linked to the life on sea, this is the reason why the word “seaquake” (u’marimotu in sicilian dialect) become synonymus of overtourning, change and revolution, these words represent, now more than ever, the sicilian situation of today.
The sicilian humus it’s always been synonymus of cultural and social ferment, not only confined in the regional side but open to the national stage, giving – over the centuries – great talents especially in the field of art and literature.
Luigi Citarrella, Alberto Criscione, Roberto Rinella and Simone Stuto are the young Sicilian artists who characterize this first edition of “U’Marimotu” project.
