Although the name may mislead, this country has nothing to share with Novara located in Piedmont. The name, in fact, has undergone several changes throughout the history: from Noa (Sicani) to Novalia (Roman), from Nuah (Arabi) to Nocaria (Normanni) and finally Novara 🙂 It was then added “di Sicilia” to differentiate it from the Novara of Northern Italy.
