The artwork in the Sicilian culture
By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation
The mattanza (Almadabra) is the tuna fishing typical of Sicily of the past. Particularly bloody, consisted in caging the tuna in the so-called chambers of death and then kill them with harpoon shots.

"Art for me is the simplicity that manages to contain the essence of things"
The Governance also suggests
The objective of the Governance is both to safeguard the traditions and ancient crafts of the people of Sicily, and to sustain economically the Artisans and the Artists, both the real ethno-anthropologists of the country.
