The artwork in the Sicilian culture
By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation
In this artwork there is the carboy, a typical round glass bottle, present all over the world, mainly as a container for wine. Here in Sicily (as well as elsewhere) it was typically covered with a wicker and there was no house where, in the past, it was not present. All Sicilian ethno-anthropological museums pass down the history and the object.
