For any of you who live in Britain, and are interested in Sicily, BBC3/4? are showing ten episodes of the Sicilian detective series 'Inspector Montalbano' - starting tonight at 9pm.

Inspector Montalbano is a detective, created by the author Camillieri - he is a fantastic character - played by the ( gorgeous) actor Luca Zingaretti: Unique, charismatic and anti establishment.

The settings are fantastic - mainly in Ragusa province, and there is a wonderful, often comic, array of characters.

Very Italian, very Sicilian.

It's a real compliment that you like them, with you being Italian. Thanks.

Lots of great historical architecture over there. That temple in Selinunte looks enormous!

Great pics, Jane! What Jane says is true, folks. When people set up their own photo threads in Urban Showcase, usually it is just for their own photos. Always check with the author of the thread before posting, and as she says it makes sense to start new threads. But only put these threads in Urban Showcase if you have taken the pictures yourselves, otherwise put them in Cityscapes and Skyline Photos, with proper creditation! Thanks.

My father was Sicilian and I've ever lived in Messina. Probably those years during my stay in Sicily were one of my better.

Great photos, amazing thread!
