beverages, Sicily, alimentary tradition, stratification of society, taste preferences and priorities
The article presents a pioneering comprehensive study of beverages in Sicily, viewing them as a distinct branch within the alimentary system of this Italian region. The author looks at alcoholic and non-alcoholic, ancient and modern, traditional local and borrowed layers which make up the drinking culture of Sicily. A special focus is made on associating particular drinks with certain local social groups and analyzing various aspects of Sicilian history, culture and traditionality. Such an approach offers a new perspective on studying the anthropological diversity of the modern Sicilian society.
