Photographer's Note

Several civilizations settled in Milazzo and left signs of their presence since Neolithic age.
The finds discovered range over Greek-Roman period to Byzantine age, go through Arabs, Normans and Spanish domination and arrive at the Italian Risorgimento.
In the historical texts Milazzo is present since IX-VIII century B.C. and you can find that Milazzo, after the Greek-Roman age, became with the Byzantines one of the first episcopal seat of Sicily.
Through the centuries, several historical personalities, like Frederick II and Carlo d’Angiς, were present in Milazzo.
Furthermore, the legend says that Milazzo was the land where Ulysses was shipwrecked and met the mythic Cyclopes. As a matter of fact the ancient historians set the town foundation in 716 b.C. in a region so rich and temperate that it was called “Sun Peninsula”.
Milazzo, as in its antiquity, is still today the starting point to get to the “seven sisters” (Eaolian Islands).
In those mythic islands where once upon a time Eolo, god of winds, nymphs and satyrs lived, you can discover today a natural paradise rich in history and art.

The blue hour comes from a French expression (l'heure bleue) which refers to the hour experienced between the hours of daylight and darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light at this time of day (also in photography) and because in the summer this is often when the smell of the flowers is at their strongest.
