Sicily Histories is an application for iOS and Android devices whose aim is to fill you with enthusiasm about the culture and history of Sicily.
We tell the story of archaeological parks, baroque monasteries, noble palaces, theatres and historical sites through the adventures of characters moving from one point of interest to another. We believe that the culture of a land is not only its artistic history, but also its warmth, folklore, cuisine and the friendliness of its people.
Using their smartphone or tablet, visitors can experience their trip following in the footsteps of historical figures from the place they are visiting. Moreover, as they move from place to place, they can play the great culture game and win prizes that can be spent throughout the region.
Sicily Histories is not just a tourist guide,
but a way of finding out about Sicily and its history.
The guide is rich and complete for each point of interest. It is the starting point for exploring the region according to thematic itineraries that cross Sicily from Marsala to Capo Passero. Each itinerary tells a story that will entertain you as you stop and experience the medieval castles, archaeological parks and all the marvellous sites that make up the beauty of the largest island in the Mediterranean.

“The idea was transferred to a technological and business thanks to the co-financing by NOP Culture and Development ERDF 2014/2020 (Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism – MIBACT). Thanks to the co-financing the technology was bought to create the application. The goal of the project is to promote the Sicilian territory thanks to the implementation of the digitalization of the cultural use of the Sicilian heritage.”
