Website creation software is a dime-a-dozen. You press a button, type in some jazz, and come up with a one page website for you and yours. But what if I said there was something that could make it even easier? Flazio, a service made by Sicilian brother and sister team Elisa and Flavio Fazio, can presumably do just that.
