Uncovering Italy’s Superlatives in people, places and things

ISSIMO Playlist: Driving around Sicily

“Oh I’d love to climb a mountain
And reach the highest peak
But it doesn’t thrill me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek”

Irving Berlin, 1935

There’s nothing like a road trip, and even better when the road in front of you takes you around Sicily, the most incredible and diverse island of the Mediterranean. Driving the coastline from Messina to Catania, through the burnt umber hills from Ragusa and through the nebbia of the Madonie, and on the streets of Palermo and the vineyards of Menfi, Sicily is a visual soundtrack and I’ve got the playlist.  Roll the windows down and cue up Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong in their 1956 duet Cheek to Cheek.
