    Date: 3 February 2023 - 5 February 2023

    Festa di Sant’Agata 2023 will take place between 3 and 5 February, 2023, in the beautiful city of Catania. The celebration is dedicated to Saint Agatha, the patron saint of the city, who was martyred in the year 251 AD, during the persecution of the Roman Emperor Decius. The saint is celebrated in Catania twice a year – the Feast of Saint Agatha held in February commemorates the martyrdom of the Saint, while the Summer Feast of Saint Agatha, held on August 17, celebrates the return of her remains to Catania, after 86 years in which the relics were kept in Constantinople. In February, around one million people come from all over Sicily to attend Festa di Sant’Agata, which is comparable with the Holy Week in Seville, Spain, or the Feast of Corpus Domini in Cuzco, Peru. For three days, the city forgets about everyday things to focus on the celebration, a mixture of devotion and folklore.   SHORT HISTORY OF THE FEAST OF SAINT AGATHA Born in Catania in 231, Agata consecrated her life to the Christian religion.

The Acireale Carnival, one of the oldest in Sicily, is characterised by a parade of allegorical floats, decorated with flowers and lights, accompanied by masked people and music bands.   SHORT HISTORY The first documented information about a carnival in Acireale dates back to 1594. At the beginning of the 17th century, it was customary to have a battle of oranges and lemons during the carnival. Despite the enthusiastic participation of the crowd, in 1612, the Court issued a ban prohibiting the practice. After the terrible earthquake of Val di Noto of 1693, which shook the eastern Sicily, the carnival was paused for a few years, but the event was reborn at the beginning of the 18th century. In 1880, the first papier-mâché floats were built and exhibited during the carnival.
