Salemi Archaeological Survey

Bumped in to Professor Dr Knolb (Northern Illinois University, USA) in Salemi the other day, for years he has been organizing archaeological digs in the surrounding Salemi area with American students. So just thought I would publish a link to his Salemi Archaeological Survey. I must make a visit to the Archaelogical Museum which he opened here in Salemi last year.

Thanks to Mafia Exposed and its planned visit to Salemi to visit the Mafia Museum. If you too fancy visiting the Mafia museum on your next visit to Sicily, let me know via the contact form, oh and if you fancy staying on the Castle square right next to the Mafia Museum, a roman castle and the old church in real Sicily then you can book to stay at our holiday house in Sicily in Salemi on airbnb.

Salemi Kims Video LA Weekly

The LA Weekly reporter Karina Longworth reports on "What happened to Kim's Video collection?" the New York VHS collection transferred to Salemi in Sicily, Italy by Kim Yong.

Karina opens the article in what appears a rather negative outlook on Salemi and the city's management of Mondo Kims Video , until she digs deeper and discovers "Kim's centre" where digitization is "work in progress".

An interesting lengthy article highlighting life in Salemi and Italianisms and interesting reading for those interested in Salemi.

The word “polemicist” was invented for people like Vittorio Sgarbi, the conservative art critic and, until last February, mayor of Salemi, Sicily. A typically polarizing Sgarbism came during the winter holidays when he announced—echoes of “bunga bunga”—that his vice mayor should be a young woman with no political strings attached.

Ever the curator, Sgarbi opened a Mafia museum in the heart of Salemi’s historic centre in 2010. More Halloween spook-house than cultural institution, the attraction that bore a blood-splattered logo was made adults-only after the “slaughterhouse cabin” display reportedly sickened two visitors.

To his credit, the mayor refused a judge’s order to remove a newspaper blowup from the museum’s wall depicting the arrest of Salemi natives Ignazio and Nino Salvo. Nino’s widow had made the initial request, adding that her husband, though indicted, had died days before his trial. (The Salvo cousins, entombed in the town cemetery, were decidedly mafiosi by investigation.)
