Homer's narration of Polyphemus unfolds on the slopes of Etna. The Riviera spreads out below it, with the coast transforming into hinterland and extending up toward the volcano near Acireale. Here, several small towns benefit from the extraordinary energy of two ancient elements: water (the sea) and fire (the magnificent Mount Etna). These energies are also the essential ingredients of the local handicrafts and traditions. The ardor and passion of this land can be found in the objects created from lava rock, in its traditional dances and even in its delicious and unique recipes.
