The lions of Sicily is the gripping story of the Florio family. Paolo and Ignazio are brothers, humble spice sellers who escaped life in Calabria, still anchored in the past, in search for social freedom. They create a future for themselves in Sicily where, starting with a run-down shop, they create a flourishing business that Paolo’s young son Vincenzo, with his revolutionary ideas, will end up transforming into an empire. However, the lives of Vincenzo and his family are sent into turmoil by the arrival of the explosive Giulia, a strong and intelligent woman, quite a contrast to the rigid rules of the time. The lions of Sicily è un’epopea fatta di amore, famiglia, successi, guerre e rivoluzioni, che si svolge nella Sicilia dell’Ottocento fino all’Unità d’Italia del 1861.
