Zia Maria and Zio Angelo bake the break at the furnu (the oven/bakery, in Sicilian). In the end, in Sicily, it’s about the people you meet and how you felt during those moments of connection. Always, thank you to Pierfilippo Spoto and Val di Kam in Sant’Angelo Muxaro, Agrigento Province for these introductions.
Whenever I’m in Siracusa, I make a point to stop by the Antico Mercato in Ortigia to say hello to Angelo. Perhaps my roots as the great-granddaughter of fishermen from Porticello make me feel right at home in amongst the swordfish. TIP: Life is slower in Sicily, so when you are visiting friends and family…
May harmony and joy greet you! Buon Natale! Merry Christmas! Ti mando armonia e gioia!
I can’t wait to sing with Angelo again … Just a few days to go!
