Marco was born here. Even though he often travels the world in pursuit of his adventurous pastimes, he always likes to come back to his native island. “For some it is just a rocky landscape, but I always find something that keeps my interest,” he says, describing his relationship to his native island. It always recharges him with natural energy, Marco adds.
Many people certainly imagine Sicily as a sun-soaked place that is ideal for summer pastimes by the sea. But Sicily also has mountains that rise from the coasts to the interior. For example, there is smoke rising from Etna’s crater that is situated at 3,329 metres above sea level. The weather in the mountains is ever-changing and treacherous.
