Typical and with a cosmopolitan past, Sicily is a land full of inspirations. Beautiful landscapes are bearers of centuries of history, tradition and modernity: a journey through time to discover the past and good food.
Western Sicily valleys are rich in traditions since ancient times. Events in the family, celebrations and parties during the year were accompanied by customs from deep and symbolic contents. Nowadays many of these uses have been lost or have lost their deeper and original meaning. The preservation of the uses, customs, cultural heritage and even more of the Sicilian language are a bulwark of this people.

« ... quando semino un grano antico semino il futuro. »
(Assia La Rosa)
Il termine antico usato è impropriamente avendo più una connotazione commerciale che non reale; le varietà cosiddette antiche infatti sono semplicemente grani che erano diffusi un tempo non necessariamente remoto e che oggi non lo sono più
Sono grani per la gran parte scomparsi perché poco adatti ad una coltivazione intensiva con processi meccanizzati e con largo impiego di fertilizzanti. Inoltre, hanno rese per ettaro più basse rispetto alle più diffuse coltivazioni di frumento odierne.
Va però sottolineato come l'agricoltura contadina tenda a resistere a queste imposizioni e resista la tradizione di riutilizzare come semente - quando le specie lo permettono - una parte dei grani prodotti, preservando così la capacità individuale di selezionare con il tempo il seme più adatto alle proprie condizioni produttive senza dipendere da una fonte esterna.
I grani duri antichi siciliani o varietà locali di grani siciliani sono una serie di 52 varietà di grani autoctoni della Sicilia...erano 100
