Next island in the collection - Sicily, autonomous region of Italy, biggest island in the Mediterranean, and neighbour of the previously described Malta. This fantastic map card was sent from Daniele, who lives at the foot of Etna volcano, in a village called Zafferano.Another name of Sicily is Trinacria (probably because of island's triangular shape), but trinacria is also the name of the symbol that you can see on this postcard - the winged head of Medusa and three wheat ears (which appears also on the Sicilian flag).
On the stamp you can see Martino Martini, Italian Jesuit missionary, cartographer and historian. Thank you Daniele for sending this card!
