Sicilian Shepherd in Enna, 1971.

Emanuela Lodato, Nisia

"Nisia is the rich fruit of a combination of diverse elements: one part of songs from long ago and far away blended with two parts of stories of migration, tales of working lives, of journeys, lullabies and invitations to the fiesta and a celebration of life. Entirely in keeping with the tradition and their own compositions and arrangements, Emanuela Lodato (Sicilian dance and vocals) and Vincent Noiret (double bass) also perform several pieces saved from oblivion thanks to dedicated research. This work made it possible to preserve a whole repertoire which continues to be a source of great inspiration. "

I just wanted to apologise for the image of a woman who I had thought was to be Sicilian that I had posted! I know many of you are thinking that it was one of the other mods who posted it, but I assure you it was not who you are accusing.

I did not…

Well, like I said before all I can really say is that I sincerely did not know. I didn’t even know who the woman in the photo (Maybe that makes me appear stupid but I did not grow up in or come from a country where these movies and such were popular, or even available in my native tongue.) and went only by what the sites in which the photos I found them on had said, which had absolutely no mention of Campania, Sardinia, or any other areas.
I simply searched “Sicilian women” and those were my results.

I have had no intentions of offending anyone or anything else of the sort. Regardless of what goes on in these tags, the constant and petty drama, I’m not interested in it and that most certainly is not my reasoning for trying to contribute to this blog nor is being “anti-Italy” or anti-anything really. Again, I apologise for anyone I have offended.

Also, maybe I misread that a bit in the beginning but I was not referring to Sophia Loren as being from Sardinia but rather a picture of another woman posted.
