We are in Nicolosi, a small village in eastern Sicily about 700 meters above sea level, made of lava stone, pine trees,…
The two ministers are Mrs. Filippina and her husband Angelo.
At the entrance we are welcomed by a beautiful nativity scene made with Sicilian mandarins.
What we are witnessing is a real gem.
Mrs. Filippina prepares for us the recipe for the cassatelle from Agira, It’s s secret for a good part.
She: This is the conca to warm up and this is the stone oven where the cassatelle are prepared
We go inside and start a nice chat
Nar: How did you two meet?
She: I was 12 years old when he first proposed , but I was too young. It could not be
He: Yes, but I didn’t give up
Nar: And when did you give up Mrs. Filippina?
She: At 16, four years later!
Nar: She made you wait a good while dear Mr. Angelo!
She: The first wedding night the heart was beating very fast. They made 3 serenades before going to bed!
All right… Let’s go make the Cassatelle
The preparation is an art of Agira.
Mamma Miaaaaaaaaaaaaaa everyone: The Cassatelle of Agira just made!
Mrs. Filippina also makes us go around her home and shows us some photos
She: This is the picture after 8 days
Nar: What does this mean?
She: When you first got married for the first 8 days you didn’t go out, you stayed at home.
Nar: Let me see how you wore after 8 days closed at home with Angelo. Mamma mia!
Nar: Mr. Angelo I know everything
He: Not everything everything!
Thank you wonderful couple of Agira: you represent all the Sicilians.
