The artwork in the Sicilian culture

By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation

The ancient art of crochet reminds us of our grandmothers, reminds us of a Sicily that has always existed and that you can still admire both in large and, above all, in small towns, where women, sitting outside the door of the house, sew and talk, talk and sew, as hundreds of years ago. Sicilian embroideries have always been among the most beautiful in the world.
