Enna is a province in the autonomous region of Sicily in Italy. It is the only Sicilian province which is not next to the ocean. It became a province in 1926 thanks to Benito Mussolini, who was fascinated by the history of the province, and in particular by the legend of Proserpina. In the province there are 8 lakes, the most important is Pergusa's lake which is the only natural lake of the Sicily; the other lakes are used for the agriculture.
