Emirate of Sicily - The Arabs initiated land reforms which in turn, increased productivity. The Arabs further improved irrigation systems. A description of Palermo was given by Ibn Hawqal, an Arab merchant who visited Sicily in 950. Agricultural items such as oranges, lemons, pistachio and sugar cane were brought to Sicily under the Arab rule. The Emirate of Sicily began to fragment as intra-dynastic quarreling fractured the Muslim regime.

|Sicilian Puppet Theatre|
In Sicily, the sides of donkey carts are decorated with intricate, painted scenes from the Frankish romantic poems. These same tales are enacted in traditional puppet theatres featuring hand-made marionettes of wood. In Sicilian this is called "Opira dî pupi", or "Opera of the puppets". The opera of the puppets and the Sicilian tradition of cantastorî, or "sing stories", are rooted in the Provençal troubadour tradition.
