The Forever Enchanting Carretti Siciliani

The history of the carretto is very old and long. It started as a means of transportations.

Whoever owned a carretto was considered wealthy, because there wasn’t only the price of the cart in itself to think about, but also that of maintaining and feeding the donkey that pulled it. The more the carretto was decorated, the richer the family.
