SWORDFISH HUNT IN SICILY

Sicily is a an ancient land, rich in tradition and history. In its fascinating landscapes past and present live together in a natural and cultural environment that often reveals its wild and primordial roots. The Strait of Messina is a sort of bottleneck where many peoples have met and clashed, a corner of the world where the open sea and the water of the Strait collide and mix together, a whirlpool that joins many natural phenomena. In these waters, men have chased swordfish for 2000 years. THE HARPOON is a story about the sea, a story that only Sicily is able to tell. In its waters survives a fishing tradition that requires special vessels and harpoons that, besides few technical improvements, look like the ones that were used thousands of years ago.
