They stimulate the palate with a combination of unique flavours and perfumes

In Sicily there are many sweets seen as typical. Indeed, when you say "cassata" the answer is Sicily. They all have very ancient origins attributed to Arab and Norman dominace for the introduction into the island of almonds and citrus fruits and to the Spanish dominance for the introduction of the "Bread of Spain" (sponge cake) and finally during the baroque period for the use of candied fruits. Least but not last the pistachio nut, in Sicilian it is called "frastuca", introduced from middle east, which is nowadays the very typical product of Sicily.
Those who dare to taste them can perceive the thin presence of a past time.
