The Sicilian Provinces (li pruvinci siciliani) and their municipalities (li soi cumuna)

Provinces/Pruvinci

Municipalities/Cumuna

There are over 600 Sicilian municipalities, most of which are currently stubs or have not even been started yet.

Other subjects related to Sicily and Sicilians (La Sicilia e li siciliani)

Much of what follows is still in the original Italian or Sicilian. Many titles might stay the same, others will definitely need to be anglicised. Many blue links have been left because they all need to be looked at, be they stubs or not. As articles begin to look complete, they can be deleted from this project page.
