Jeremy Dummett is an expert on the history and culture of Sicily.
A British national brought up in Melbourne, Australia, he attended Geelong Grammar School from where he went on to read history at Trinity College, Cambridge. In a long vacation he took a course in Italian at Perugia University which began a lifelong interest in Italy.
During his professional career, spent in marketing with international companies, he lived for several years in Italy since when he has been based in London.
Since retiring, Jeremy has been a regular visitor to Sicily. His books are the result of fifteen years of researching and exploring the island.
