La sposa di Entella
Description by the artist
Here it is La sposa di Entella (The bride from Entella). Pure linen with cotton renaissance lace. Entirely handmade. The design on the paper comes from my imagination. All seams are done by hand, without the use of a sewing machine. Mine is an ancient technique and a passion since I was a child, a passion handed down by my grandmother, my mother and then me.

The artwork in the Sicilian culture
The Renaissance lace is an extremely delicate work where you need need needle, thread, fabric, paper, tissue, but also a lot of patience and skill. It was extremely popular during the ‘500, during the Renaissance from which it takes its name. Here in Sicily our women, sitting outside the door of the house, all together, embroidered and chatted. They still do, preparing these precious trousseaus with beautiful ornamental designs.
Entella is a hill that is located in the western part of Sicily and that once was the seat of a Greek city and whose ruins can still be seen, among sheep, cows and a wonderful landscape enhanced by the underlying artificial lake Garcia.
