Sicily has produced a lot of famous and succesful artists from Franco Battiato to Giuni Russo, Marcella Bella and Gianni Bella, Carmen Consoli, Gerardina Trovato, Rosario Di Bella, Luca Madonia and Silvia Salemi come to mind from the past decennies. But the season of various talent shows and competitions 2014-2015 is all Sicilian!
In 2014 Suor Cristina from Comiso wins The Voice Italia, Deborah Uirato from Ragusa Amici and Lorenzo Fragola from Catania X Factor, now Giovanni Caccamo from Modica wins Sanremo nuove proposte and Il Volo the festival itself. Two of the guys are Sicilian (Piero from Naro and Ignazio from Marsala), only Gianluca comes from Abruzzo region. 6-1 for Sicily vs. rest of Italy, not bad?
Now all we need to add to the list is an Eurovision victory :-)
