From “Viaggio in Italia” by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“When the Everlasting Father created the world and spread the various colors into the various parts of the world, on his plate there were left very small quantities of colors. Not knowing how to distribute them, he mixed them up together and poured them upon an Mediterranean island: Sicily, which became the island of the sun, the most beautiful of the islands, the island most favored by nature, the queen of the islands ” “It is in Sicily that the key to everything is found” “The purity of the edges, the softness of everything, the yielding interchangeability of the colors, the harmonious unity of the sky with the sea and the sea with the earth … he has seen them only once, he will have them all for his life “.
