Description by the artist

Felice è lu suli (Sicilian for Happy is the Sun) in Sicily, land of  sun, source of light and life.

It has always watched over us, illuminating our days. The sun, here anthropomorphized, smiles at us and makes us smile, warming our hearts.

The artwork in the Sicilian culture

By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation

Sun, sea and good food are one of the slogans that accompany Sicily all over the world. But also Sun, art and hospitality; Sun, history and nature; Sun, cannoli and prickly pears … In short: the Sun, in the collective imagination, is always present when talking about Sicily. Sun that sometimes is too strong in summer, but in winter is a sweet blanket for the skin and, above all, for the soul. A land child of the Sun, no doubt about it.
