Amunì!

Let’s start with a simple one: amunì.

Amunì is likely to be the word that you hear the most when you are in Sicily.

It means, “Let’s go!”

Wherever you are in Palermo, you will hear this. In the markets, in a bar. By old men sitting outside under the sun, by children begging their parents to be taken home.

Old, young, Sicilian and otherwise. This is the easiest Sicilian word that I know, that even I utter every now and again.
