Almanac of the past

On December 5, 1666 the musician Francesco Scarlatti was born in Palermo, brother of the most famous Alessandro. Let’s listen to a piece of his Dixit Dominus

Sicilian saying are like pieces of the gospel  La jaddina chi cammina, s’arricogghi cu la vozza china which is that the walking hen when she returns always comes back with a full throat and it means that anyone that walks, moves and gets busy will always get something.

Photos of the past 1928 we are in Castiglione di Sicilia and you can see a group of washerwomen and children from near a spring. In those days people walked barefoot and women rubbed their clothes on the stones to clean them. The lady in black is in mourning. There is no shortage of Prickly pears and it must have been very hot that day almost 100 years ago.
