Sicilian* Culture
(* denotes a culture rather than a country.)

Background: Sicily is an island of Italy, the largest and one of the most densely populated in the Mediterranean Sea. Together with the Egadi, Lipari, Pelagie, and Panteleria islands, Sicily forms an autonomous region of Italy. It lies about 100 miles (160 km) northeast of Tunisia (northern Africa). The island is separated from the mainland by the Strait of Messina (2 miles [3 km] wide in the north and 10 miles [16 km] wide in the South). The capital is Palermo.

Proverbs from the Sicilian Culture
Walk with your slippers until you can find your shoes.
Who is blind, dumb and deaf will live a peaceful life of a hundred years.
Keep watch for the appearing mushroom.
Crooked wood is straightened with fire.
Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty.
