About me

Occupation Artist, writer, businesswoman
Location Del Mar, California, United States
Introduction Rosetta Sciacca Volkov was born and grew up in the western-most part of the island of Sicily, in the ancient Phoenician settlement of Marsala. True to the spirit of her adventure-faring Phoenician ancestors, Rosetta emigrated to United States, returning to Italy some 10 years later and settling in Rome. She returned to the U.S. for university and later began her family there, but has never drifted far from her Sicilian roots. Educated in both countries and immersed in the culture and language of each, she seamlessly bridges both worlds. Rosetta's profound love for and attachment to the traditional ways of her native Sicily, along with its cuisine, literature, history and visual and performing arts, represent an important part of her life. Painter, writer, chef and businesswoman, Rosetta and her husband, Michael Volkov, divide their time between San Diego,CA, Washington DC, and Marsala, Sicily, maintaining residences there.
