Hi Maria....
Nice to see you over here with us at "Amici".

I'm sure you'll enjoy our 'off the wall' approach frizzy to many things in life. Do introduce yourself to the rest of the members over on the Welcome Forum. You'll see what a warm welcome we give to our 'newbies'.

You will also notice that many of us here use 'cut down' photos for our avatars....we like being able to see who we're talking to. Of course that is NOT compulsory, more a matter of individual choice.

Welcome Bananajoy

Grazie per le foto meravigliose - mi hanno fatto ricordare il mio viaggio in Sicilia che ho fatto sette anni fa. MMMM che dolci buonissimi!

After seeing Simona's posts of her hometown, I started to look at all the others in this forum. This one drew particular interest as I had just read Theresa Maggio's books Mattanza and The Stone Boudoir: Travels Through the Hidden Villages of Sicily, which devotes a chapter to the Sant'Agata Festival in Catania. I showed my mother the photos, as she had read the book too; she liked them very much. One photo did not load, which I imagine might be the fercola.

Maggio has a web site with her own photos which help your vision of the stories plus links to more photos and a web site of the fishermen (tonnorati):

-There is also a sample chapter from The Stone Boudoir. The comments section seems to be out of order, the last message posted in 2006 and many have put up ads instead. The link to the publisher is broken too, so there is no way to contact her.

Fantastic pictures of Etna too. Now I see what she meant by the lava engulfing the land.

Thanks,

Dave
