Adriano, a Yabla star, shares about his day-to-day experiences in Palermo, Sicily. He speaks in a very clear and direct way, and introduces us to his family and girlfriend. Highlights include meeting Adriano's charming mother, who prepares a lemon granita recipe, and a visit to a Palermo antique dealer.
Adriano has invited us to the baptism of his son Philip. It allows us to get a glimpse of one of the most beautiful places to visit in Palermo, the Palatine Chapel. The priest tells the congregation about the consecration of this famous basilica in 1040.
After the baptism ceremony in the Palatine Chapel, Adriano takes us to another historically and artistically rich site in Palermo: the Convento di Baida [Baida Abbey]. In Italian, the term convento is used more commonly than monastero [monastery] and may house either male or female religious communities.
After Philip's baptism, there is a banquet with typical Sicilian food, and favors for the guests. And there also happens to be a stunning view of Palermo from the convent or monastery hosting the party.
