Sometimes a frontier, sometimes a bulwark against the infidel – Sicily has always been a living contradiction. This applies not merely to the way it is represented but also to Sicily’s many striking contradictions: it has always been fortified and even militarised yet remains a constant landing place for exiles, merchants, peoples and cultures. Despite this evidence that it is impossible to render any island impregnable and deny what lies deep in its DNA, this does not stop people trying to do exactly that and ignoring history – particularly the long history of the 16th century – which teaches us that migration cannot be stopped.
