Come to Sicily
I am Chiara and I gently
tiptoe through life.
I left my hometown to follow my heart. If there is something I’m sure about is that there is no wrong in acting for Love.
Twenty years ago I discovered Sicily for the first time. Sicily is welcoming and intriguing, polite and controversial. At that time I still didn’t know that I would hopelessly fall in love with it.
I was born in the North of Italy, but I consider myself an adoptive daughter of the South of Italy.
A breathtakingly beautiful land with an old sea, dazzling light and Baroque architecture.
In a matter of time I became Donna Stella’s chosen one and she named me “ a pupa ca balla” (the dancing lady).
Donna Stella was a woman from Scicli and a Sicilian knowledge custodian. She gave me a shawl as a gift. My first shawl.
This shawl kept me warm and made me feel home and comforted for a long time.
Donna Stella left me an important legacy, to promote and spread the old Sicilian shawl tradition throughout the world. And that is my job and my mission.
