<< Do you know the happiness of admiring the bright sun in the blue sky?>>

The serenity it prvides. A large red fireball should scare, and instead reassures. Light up everything, every day. It stands out there, round in the middle of the blue, and during the day it approaches and moves away. Here, everyone is grateful to the sun, even if they don’t know it, or they don’t notice it; and whoever is not, certainly should be. There is one thing, however, that for Sicilians is comparable to this wonderful natural routine.

<< What? >>

Well, at this point it is necessary, in order to understand such a thing, to empty the mind. You have to travel to Sicily, and walk the streets of its markets, its historic centers. Here then, you will begin to hear the noises of the street. And then you will listen. After hearing, sight: colors everywhere, simplicity, majesty. But at a certain point, the other senses will be overwhelmed by the sense of smell: citrus scents, but also of fresh fish, and then frying: panelle, crocchè, arancine.

So: for a Palermitan, an arancina is a huge marvelous ball of fire. It enchants them every time. The same goes for the people of Catania, even if it is male for them ( arancino! ). Biting into that artistic and crunchy external breading, discovering the inside, butter or meat, it does not matter, you find yourself comforted, and then another bite and you end up being happy. With a boiling heart, it rolls golden and greasy …

The sun gives light, the arancina too. Everyone finds it in the things they love. Light is everywhere.
