Every February the patron saint of Catania, Sant'Agata, is celebrated with a sumptuous feast that goes back ages and is known worldwide for its high level of participation.
For comfort and sustenance, the little boy protagonist of the story, brings with him "olivette" and "torrone", typical traditional sweet treats of the feast. Waiting for the ceremony, he is overwhelmed and he fells almost lost due to the novelty of the event. Instinctively he brings the favors to his mouth, chews them and lets himself rock in their gorgeous flavor: almonds, pistachios, caramelized sugar... In his nose the sweet delicious scent of the favors mixes with the smell of the ancient church, where incense burning for hundreds of years has settled on damp stones and smooth aged woods along with the honeyed smell of beeswax candles.
