On a recent night at Bar Dough, LoHi’s hip-hop-pumping Italian wine bar and pizza oven, a black and white version of Gal Gadot’s “Wonder Woman” was playing in the background.

I’m thinking Sicily right now. Of course it has to do with all the wonderful food and my family heritage but also about independent filmmaker Mark Spano, writer, producer, and director of "Sicily: Land of Love and Strife."
