Le Edicole Votive Dedicate a Sant’Agata nella Città di Catania
[The votive aedicules in honour of Saint Agata in Catania]

The link existing between the inhabitants of Catania and their Patron Saint, Saint Agata, is reflected also into the big number of votive aedicules dedicated to Her.
They represent a private and personal form of worship:
during my spot checks, the owners who told me the story of their own “little shrines” and how they have been passing down from generation to generation were several.

I wish to thank the Chiesa Badia di Sant’Agata for having hosted the exposition of my project in 2018 and 2019 and the superintendence of cultural heritage of Catania and its demo-ethno-anthropological section.
