-------Click on IMAGES to enjoy more PETRALIA SIGARTANNA aria.
Sicilians smoke like chimney's - the younger generations especially. Went to an indoors night-time political meeting with about 15 persons present - the majority young - found myself to be the only non smoker. It WAS an unpleasant experience in this particular regard. Subsequently piled-up logo'd local Communist Party LIBERATION FESTIVAL cigarette lighters (see image above) were a totally banal non-brainer. I have no idea whether the Communist Party has ever expressed itself about smoking related health concerns. A year or so earlier I made a summertime trip up to the MADONNA del' ALTO local mountain top sanctury - about 40 persons up there mostly young - only a very small minority were not smoking. Sicily is very very beautiful but not in every respect. Abandoned dogs are another very unpleasant blot on the landscape.
