Madonna delle milizie, Scicli - Era in un paese’ dissi ‘era in un paese attraversato da un fiume di sassi dove facevano la fiera. L’ho dimenticato che nome aveva… E l’ho cercato, ma nessuno lo sa, dove sia. E la Madonna a cavallo era solo lì. Io ero bambino, no? E la vidi sopra il cavallo impennato che pestava i saraceni, una madonna così diversa dalle altre. Mi dicono che non esistono Madonne a cavallo”

"It was in a town," I said, "it was in a town crossed by a river of stones where they did the fair. I have forgotten its name... and I have searched for it, but no one knows where it is. And the Madonna on horseback was only there. I was a child, wasn't I? And I saw her on a horse soaring above the Saracens, such a different Madonna from the others. They tell me there are no Madonnas on horseback."

Complicity - The 3de day of Saint Agatha festival in Catania, the carriage of the Senate (representing the polical power as opposed to the relegious) is carried by numerous white horses. This pitcure was taken during the backstage, while the horses are getting prepared and this seemed a beautiful moment of complicity between this horse and this old man.
However is this event itself is quite traumatic for the horses as they have to pass throught the crowd and the rumor of firecrackers everywhere.
