I was inspired by the prickly pear and its plots that bind us, harness us and that, magically, make us freer to dream. 925/000 silver polished burnished prickly pear texture. Handmade with imperfections and irregularities, which is unique. 925/000 silver polished burnished. 925/000 Bleached silver.

L'opera nella cultura siciliana

A cura della Governance di Sicilian Artisan Foundation

The prickly pears  (which inspired Roberto) are one of the great symbols of Sicily. They grow everywhere: on the sides of cliffs, in gardens, on the roofs of abandoned houses, on the sides of roads … Its fruit (ripe by the end of August) is delicious and much loved by Sicilians who also make rosoli and mostarda, a sweet typically prepared in jars, with the addition of carnations, cinnamon and almonds. Gelo is also very appreciated, a sort of gelatinous cream. Prickly pears were imported by Arabs during their domination (IX-XI century).

L’obiettivo della Governance è sia quello di salvaguardare le tradizioni e gli antichi mestieri del popolo di Sicilia, sia quello di sostenere economicamente i creativi, veri e propri etno-antropologi di un popolo.
