With Each Pump of Lu Sapuni

This beautiful soap dispenser was made for me by ceramic artist Angelo Varsallona, based in Caltagirone. It sits at my kitchen sink in the New York area. I think of Sicily with every pump!

Bonus: lu sapuni is how one would say soap in Sicilian. Extra bonus: lu lumiuni or la lumia is how one would say lemon in Sicilian (from “Learn Sicilian” by Gaetano Cipolla).
