Oh, Amore Mio! Tesore Mio!

Oh, Amore Mio! Tesore Mio! (Oh, my love! My treasure!) … Can’t you hear her say? Love is in the air and on Sicilian carts with their illustrations of chivalry from “Orlando furioso” and other stories of princesses and knights. Master cart painter Michele Ducato in Bagheria showed us this cart, almost completed, in his workshop. Upclose. 

Now, grab your love–who ever that may be (or a stranger (but ask first)!), and plant one on them for Valentine’s Day. 

Make it a day full of love, Tesoro.
