Isole siciliane

The islands of Sicily are territories consisting of the archipelagos and scattered islands that, together with the island of Sicily, make up the administered territory of the Sicilian Region, in island Italy. Including the island of Sicily, there are 19 inhabited islands. The main island groups of the great archipelago of Sicily are the Aeolian, Egadi and Pelagie Islands; the Stagnone and Cyclops Islands, on the other hand, make up two small archipelagos to the west and east of the Sicilian island, respectively, opposite the coasts of Marsala, in the Trapani area, and Aci Trezza, in the Catania area. Ustica and Pantelleria, in the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Sicilian Channel, form two separate municipalities of the metropolitan city of Palermo and the free municipal consortium of Trapani. The historic centers of Syracuse and Augusta, in the Syracuse area, are located on two islands connected to the mainland. Also connected to the Sicilian archipelago, from a geographical and historical point of view, are the Calipsee Islands, forming the Republic of Malta; on the contrary, the Pelagie Islands (particularly the islands of Lampedusa and Lampione) represent a peripheral territory of the Italian Republic, being located, geographically, on the African continent.Directed by Gigi Oliviero
