Almanac of the past
02 October 1862 Amysterious crime occurred in Palermo known as the story of the Palermo Stabblers when 13 people are stabbed simultaneously in Palermo, in 11 more or less equidistant points.
Sicilian saying “Lu signuri duna viscotta a cui nun havi ianchi” (God gives cookies to those who don’t have teeth) which means that luck often happens to those who don’t need it.
Photos of the past This photograph is from the 1940s and we see some women and children in front of a Sicilian farm. We see clothes hanging behind, we imagine the characteristic smell of chickens everywhere. There is a cart perhaps for transporting fruit or grain. The women seem to be reading a letter from some distant relative.
