In the 70s and 80s, the Sicilian bee came close to total extinction, avoided thanks to the colossal effort and devouring passion of the beekeeper, Carlo Amodeo. Today, the master of Sicilian bees owns more than 1800 hives, spread across the Aeolian Islands to the north-east of Sicily, which are now the sole sanctuaries for those that he calls his “empresses”.
