Messina – Norwegian aid dish, harbor & imaginary bridge

The highlight of Messina is the main church with a astronomical clock tower offering a clock show everyday at 12:00. 1908 the city was struck by an 7,1 earthquake and Norway sent two ships of cod as aid and Messina’s main dish Stocco alla Messinese was created. In the video I also visit the imaginary bridge area and best view sites.

Messina is a city with 236000 inhabitants where the the harbor connects Sicily with Calabria by mafia controlled ferry traffic. Will the bridge ever be built?

Gangi – The Medieval art town on a golden hill

Gangi is the old Greek name of Sicily. A mountain town with Norman origins situated 1000 m.a.s.l. with 6100 inhabitants. Named themselves “The town of arts”. Tricky roads to drive too, but offers stunning views and originality. Here I also found a local tambourine shop still making tambourines the traditional way from goat skin.
