Every year in Ramacca we celebrate our Patron Saint San Giuseppe. Some families and churches make altars: they are tables full of lots of typical Sicilian dishes, such as omelettes, fish, any kind of sweets, biscuits, bread, artichokes, pasta with “maccu”. The tables are divided into two equal parts, one part is dedicated to “I tri pirsuna”, they are three children representing the holy family who eat the food; the other part of the table is dedicated to their friends and relatives who can eat at lunchtime because they have helped them. At the end of the lunch, the three people are given the “cuddura” which is bread in the shape of a circle, an orange , an s-shaped biscuit and a fennel, symbols of our religious tradition. People can see the altars the day before, then they can take photos. Altars are a mirror of our religious devotion to San Giuseppe, they’re a show of perfumes and colours.
