The Domus Aeternae

The senses tell of the boy’s sarcophagus

The treasures of the Girgentana goats

In recent years it has been discovered that the milk of the Girgentana goats produces fine cheese with a delicate and particular taste given by the mixture of typical Sicilian flavours.
Some examples are the mbriaca, a caciotta cheese that is immersed in Nero d’Avola wine; cinniri cheese, which is left to rest in the ashes of almond wood; and ficarra, a stracchino cheese refined in fig leaves.

The pathos in the Sarcophagus of the Child

Observing the Sarcophagus of the Child means surrendering to the narrative present on its sides.
Through a skilful play of light and shadow on white marble, the sculptors have given the story an emotional appeal that leaves no for indifference: the face of the woman who leans over the body of the child, to caress his face, is full of emotion.
