An ebook in Sicilian and English. By Arthur V. Dieli with a Foreword by Charles Giordano.

Sicilian proverbs are a pathway into the reality of Sicilian culture over the centuries. They are the voices of its people that ring true from generation to generation. The proverbs are an important sub-text of their conversation. Every segment of society is represented by the truth of the proverbs. The majority of the Sicilian proverbs in this collection were recorded by Giuseppe Pitrč (1841-1916) in four volumes of his twenty-five volume library of Sicilian folklore. The eBook is currently available from Friesen Press, iTunes Bookstore, and Google Play. It will be available from Amazon and in a Kindle edition soon.
