Sicilian Home towns
The great exodus from Sicily began soon after the unification of Italy and continued after WWI and WWII. At least 40% of the Sicilian population left their homes and emigrated abroad. Most of these people came from far off- villages and towns which, even today, are difficult to locate on the map. The team of Sicilytravel.net is gathering all the information available on these places of origin in Sicily. Your contribution is more than welcome.
