Palermo's the most conquered city in history.

First the Phoenicians...

...the Romans, Carthaginians, Byzantines.

Then came the Arabs...

...Spaniards, Neapolitans.

Now comes...

...the American Army.

Carthaginians are basically Phoenicians. The Phoenicians had a massive trade empire, maybe even extending to the British Isles.

Where I went too. Saw your question, thought "hmmm...", and went and wiki'd it. Handy little resource, and those damn Phoenicians sure did get around.

If somebody does that cantelope/egg-plant Walken thing, I am gonna scream.

Also, Italy has pretty much had everybody in the Mediterranean basin invade at some point.

This is worse, it's Sicily. I could list the various rulers / tribes, but I don't have that kind of time.

Vandals, Arabs, Berbers, Greeks, Romans, Spanish, French, Normans, Carthaginians, Germans, North Italians, and Turks.

That's just off the top of my head.

Amusing, Carthage is thought to have meant "new city", and then the Carthaginians went and founded Carthago Nova in Spain (now Cartagena).

she looks great for 42, but who the hell believes a call girl when they're praising how good you are in bed?

as for the tombs.... berlusconi is king of assholes to keep a find like that secret. if he's worried about people farking up his property in order to excavate and study, aren't there ways to protect both his property and the find? or was he worried that he'd lose the property because of the historic world value those tombs hold?

/god he sucks

Pretty good list, but don't forget the poor Sicarii, for whom the island is named.

The more quotable quotes from the Italian PM's scandalous defence in his latest sex scandal...

"There are a lot of pretty girls about. I am no saint, but you know that."

"Guests at some of the parties have taken photos on their mobile phones that have since ended up in the papers, but phones were never confiscated because I have nothing to hide.

As long as I'm present, nothing inelegant can happen because I'm a person of good taste, culture and elegance."

"I am like that and I will not change. People want me the way I am."

On tape

In the tapes leaked by escort Patrizia D'Addario, a businessman linked to Berlusconi tells her, "Oh, another thing he doesn't use a condom."

She replies, "No chance without a condom. How can I be sure?" He reassures her, "Come on it's Berlusconi.

Actually, the Sicarri were Jewish assassins. The Romans never actually called Sicily Sicily, they called it Trinacria.

They called it Sicilia. And I may have added an extra I, but I'm sure I'm right about the original people there.

You mean like Adm. Piri Re'is? Sixteenth century, but everyone knows about him. Don't think there's ever been a movie about him, though.
