"The Key To Everything" – Goethe In Sicily... Johann Wolfgang (von) Goethe, most famous poet, playwright, author and polymath in German history spent 40 days in 1787 in Sicily, starting with a two-week sojourn in Palermo (interrupted by various excursions), followed by a voyage through the southwest, centre and northeast of the island, taking in many sites and cities found on our own tour itineraries, his eyes open not only to the ancient heritage that was his primary objective, but also to the landscapes, to the character of the various guides and hosts that looked after him, and to the spirit of the place. The scope of his observations ranges from archaeology via architecture and art history to geology, botany and even ethnography, switching between scientific and objective views to deeply personal and aesthetic ones.
