The posters advertised a Typical Big Sicilian Party where we would find tastings and sales of local products and handicrafts and refreshments. Visiting the festival in Florence's Piazza Annigoni, we were not disappointed.
I first came upon meters and meters of almond cookies (pasta di mandorla) and small marzipan sculptures of fruits and vegetables.
The cheeses were extraordinarily varied and were offered in sizeable portions.
In the center of it all was an exquisitely painted horse cart. We were in Italy!
