The Sicilian cart – Carretto Siciliano

These lovely Sicilian decorated carts and accessories for horses are originally from Greece. The ancient Greeks introduced this tradition to Sicily. They got popular in the 1920’s and are sold also as decorations made of wood all over the island. You can find the Sicilian Cart museum in Terrasini, Province of Palermo. The carts are handmade and painted by hand with images telling about Sicilian folklore and history. Horses were used in the city and plain terrain, mules and donkeys in the countryside. This beautiful craft goes as heritage from generation to generation.

In a world without industrialism

A beautiful thing with Sicily is that they have managed to keep handy craft and genuine produce in a world where everything is industrialized. The taste and quality of food is amazing and you can find carpenters, shoe repair shops, create and have your own furniture and home decorations done. And it is not expensive either.
