Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea.  It constitutes an autonomous Region of Italy, along with surrounding minor islands, officially referred to as Regione Sicilana.  Sicily is located in the central Mediterranean Sea, south of the Italian Peninsula, from which it is separated by the narrow Strait of Messina.  Its most prominent landmark is Mount Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe, and one of the most active in the world.  Sicilian cuisine shows traces of all the cultures which established themselves on the island of Sicily over the last two millennia.  Although its cuisine has a lot in common with Italian cuisine, Sicilian food also has Greek, Spanish, French, and Arab influences.
