Don Giovanni in Sicilia is a novel by Vitaliano Brancati, published in 1941.[1]

The main character of the novel, Giovanni Percolla, is used to depict the scenario of male sexual conceit (in Italian: gallismo) characterising Sicily in the late 1930s.[2][3]

In 1967, director Alberto Lattuada adapted the novel into a film of the same name.
