About Us

About Us: We are Joe and Giulia, husband and wife, authors of this blog. As fans of the Inspector Montalbano TV series and Andrea Camilleri’s books, we visited Italy a few years ago. We were motivated to learn about Montalbano’s Sicily. We fell in love with Sicily, and we stayed to live in Ragusa. Why Ragusa? It is easy to fall in love with the city where Salvo Montalbano grew up, to enjoy walking through the streets with its baroque art, to taste the Sicilian cuisine, and to enjoy the proximity of the best beaches of Sicily (Marina di Ragusa, Scoglitti, Cefalù, etc.).

All Montalbano filming locations are real, can be visited, and are located in the province of Ragusa, in Sicily! We are Joe (in Italian, Giuseppe) and Giulia (from Italy), and we invite you to discover Montalbano’s Sicily through our blog.
