Jean Paul Barreaud, a lecturer in Sicily, is originally from Gascony, a region of tradition in south west of France.
It is now 32 years he has been living in Sicily, a land of which he has studied and deepened the greatest secrets and mysteries, loving its absolute beauty and infinite contradictions.
A passionate lover of Sicilianity, in its many and varied aspects, he is a specialist in the esoteric transmission of knowledge, an expression that finds in Sicily kind of a Pythagorean cradle.
Since 2005 Jean Paul has been promoting an original type of visitor guiding, providing his interlocutors with the knowledge of a lifelong, such as the passion for biblical exegesis and mythologies and transforming each path into an original story, nourished by heterogeneous cues, cultured insights and historical digressions that involve the audience in an absolutely unique experience.
His hypotheses on the historical, artistic and social particularities of the various Sicilian places and events always have a characteristic of stimulating reflection outside the usual "academic" readings and involve the spectator, transforming him into the protagonist of new discoveries and revelations.
