ABOUT ME

Hello! My name is Maricetta and I teach the Italian language and Sicilian culture to foreigners.

I have done this job for 27 years and I love it! After so many years, I still feel the same passion and enthusiasm…

I took a degree in foreign languages and literature, hoping that this qualification would give me the opportunity to work with people from abroad. I am lucky because I have realized my dream!

As well as loving the teaching of languages, I also have a passion for art, history and literature. I feel so fortunate to have been born in Sicily, a wonderful island rich in culture, art and magic traditions and I would like to share all this with you!

So, why did I choose the name Halisaclub?

Well, when Arabs conquered Sicily, in the 9th century, the Emir chose an area, in Palermo, where he wanted to live with his Court and he called it “al halisah” meaning the chosen one, the favourite one. The name Halisaclub comes from this Arab word…
