Team Mago is currently on Pantelleria, a small island about midway between Sicily (62 miles away) and Tunisia (37 miles away). Absolutely everything about Pantelleria is interesting including the geology, geography, history, agriculture, people, and recreation.
Check back every once in awhile. We’ll be updating this post while we’re on the island.

Roberto Piccione is a professional tour guide for all of Italy and provides WWII battlefield tours in Sicily.
