SantAgata-4-febbraio2

One curious and fascinating moment of the procession today is “La Salita di San Giuliano/The Hill of San Giuliano” in Catania – it is believed that if all devotees will carry Sant’Agata together and running, without stopping – the coming year will be an incredible one for the city…….notice the strength, devotion and teamwork of Sicilians that is manifested here…..
