It says it's a list of Sicilian proper names, but they aren't all people's names, Aropa's supposed to be Europe, and Giappuni Japan.

I've noticed there's a few of these Wikipedias in various Italian dialects now, and indeed I've been wondering if they're not meant to be tongue-in-cheek. The dialects are not used in formal or official context and it's not like anyone needs a wikipedia in dialect when there's the Italian one.
