The artwork in the Sicilian culture

By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation

Lemons, and citrus fruits in general, are one of the great symbols of Sicily. They were imported during the Arab domination (IX-XI century). With lemons Sicilians make, among other things, the famous granitas and the equally famous limoncello. It is practically impossible to visit Sicily, even for a couple of hours, without seeing at least one lemon tree.
