Sikulo is all about a love story started in front of a cup of cofee some twenty years ago and brought forward day after day with passion and commitment.
Through the years I shared this project with my cousin Massimo, my family, our Team and our guests, building all together this little corner of Sicily. With our dishes we narrate the culture of the old good Sicilian food, prepared everyday with our hands, from breakfast to dinner, following original recipes and using only prime ingredients – organic and local when possible.
Thus, Sikulo has progressively become the crux of a gastronomic offer based on research and experimentation. Different knowhows have converged in the same direction, resulting as a gamble in a place deeply rooted in our culture yet evolving at the speed of light, one that’s become a reference for all those who come back to feel the taste of home.

who gave visibility to the project

The Route intends to enhance the cultural, natural and landscape heritage of these places through the collaboration of cities, enterprises, volunteers and also institutions that want to bring their contribution to the search of a new relationship between man and the surrounding cultural heritage, as well as new pedagogical and tourism models for the needs of today’s cultural exchange. Such places of ancient origin become the stages of a trip along the whole Mediterranean, through which exchange objects, knowledge and experiences.

The Phoenicians’ Route also promotes an identity integrated and responsible cultural tourism in collaboration with public and private organizations at local, national, and international levels, to discover the real Mediterranean.

LNI (Italian Boat Club), through its Palermo Section, is enthusiastically one of the main supporters of the project. Its efforts go in the direction of spreading the culture of the sea, in particular to young people as an investment for the future.

The Palermo Section was established on 23 June 1901 and is the oldest sailing association in the city.
As of today, Palermo has two LNI Sections: “Palermo Centro” and “Palermo Arenella”. The first Section deals mainly with sailing whereas the second one directs its activity towards canoeing.
In the last few years the Sections have greatly increased the number of joint activities dedicated to spreading the culture of the sea: a clean and usable sea for everyone.
It is with this spirit that more and more often both Sections collaborate to organize regattas, courses, social, recreational, or cultural activities, and above all an intense activity for handicapped people.
