Francofonte – The palace with faces and oranges

Francofonte with its 11,600 inhabitants is located in the middle of the most important orange districts in Sicily. The highlight of this town is Cruyllas Palace with face decorations, each with a different expression.

“Sta su Cazzo”

Sicilian expressions are funny and very strong. So strong that our nordic bad words sounds like a church choir in comparison. I started to be tired of the slow renovation of my bathroom because the fourth day not even the walls were done and I felt bad also for my landlord to pay for slow crew (which is normal here). So on my way to work I just passed the crew and said with a calm voice Questa cosa sta su cazzo! Which means literally that This thing stands on the dick!. It is a strong expression saying that this renovation starts to be a heavy burden. And guess what? Yes, when I came back hours later, the bathroom was done.

It is the same when I fly back to Sicily. I do not need to look for the gate. I just hear where the word Minchia is said out loud and I know it is the gate to Catania. Minchia = Dick!


Sicilianska uttryck ?r roliga och mycket starka. S? starka att v?ra nordiska fula ord l?ter som en kyrkok?r i j?mf?relse. Jag b?rjade bli tr?tt p? den l?ngsamma renoveringen av mitt badrum eftersom den fj?rde dagen var inte ens v?ggarna klar och jag tyckte ocks? synd f?r min hyresv?rd som betalar f?r l?ngsamma arbetare (vilket ?r normalt h?r). S? p? v?gen till jobbet gick jag f?rbi arbetarna och sa med en lugn r?st Questa cosa sta su cazzo!. Vilket betyder bokstavligen att Denna saken st?r p? kuken!. Det ?r ett starkt uttryck som s?ger att denna renovering b?rjar bli en tung b?rda. Och gissa vad? Ja, n?r jag kom tillbaka timmarna senare var badrummet gjort.

Det ?r samma sak n?r jag flyger tillbaka till Sicilien. Jag beh?ver inte leta efter gaten. Jag h?r ordet Minchia s?gas h?gt och jag vet att det ?r gaten till Catania. Minchia = Kuk.
