THE RECENT HISTORY OF SICILIAN SKATEBOARD TOURS
The Recent History of Sicilian Skateboard Tours is a project and a self published book about the recent spate of skate trips to Sicily. After the first tour organized in 2004 by Transworld Skateboarding and 411VM, Sicily experienced a growing interest from international skateboard companies. Thanks to these tours Sicily is becoming one of the most popular destinations in Europe.
Over the past few years I've been following the skateboard tours that have taken place in my island. I wasn’t the official photographer on any of them so every time I found out that a team was skating here I’d ask them if I could follow them taking pictures and in exchange give them hospitality in my homeland.
Part of the project was originally published on Desillusion Magazine issue 44 (video here) and just became an independent printed publication. More here.
