The Story to live together
Saro’s cousins live abroad, they come to Acireale for the first time and they dream of finding their roots, the sea and the lands they had never seen before and meeting their relatives they have never met. Saro organizes the meeting with Giuseppe, “Pepè”, the only cousin who has decided to continue the profession of grandparents and of great-grandparents: fishing. It will surely be an exciting moment even if it won’t be easy to understand each other, Pepè only speaks the Sicilian dialect! Do you feel ready to learn the ancient secrets of fishing and find your roots? Saro awaits you at sunset in the square of Acireale!
