The art of pottery making is a very elaborate handicraft that requires a lot of skill and patience.

The origins of the Opuntia Ficus Indica, the botanical name of the prickly pears, date back to the Spanish domination in Sicily during the fifteenth century, when they were imported from south and central America to Sicily.
