Sicilian pastries. Aeolian and Sicilian typical products


But, why ...

Dear readers,
We dedicate this short article to all those employees, suppliers and couriers who, giving rein to their colorful imagination, we have labeled "Mille Dolci", "Mila and Dulce”, etc.; and to how many of the visitors to our site, or who know us, at least once wondered: "But, why "Mylae Dulcis” name?

The name "Mylae" in its greek-latin form, was chosen by the dedication in a charming town in northern Sicily who, for various reasons, common to the original founders, current directors and employees of our company: Milazzo (Sicily province of Messina – Italy).

Tourist locality appreciated for its enviable position, facing the beautiful Aeolian Islands, is located at the base of the peninsula, which juts wild to the North. With her shares two gulfs that, for different morphological characteristics, are distinguished by the peculiarity of their beauty, and, also, it shares the name of "Peninsula of the sun", one of the rare places where you can contemplate te sun when it comes from sea ​​that when it recline in.

The history of Milazzo is fascinating. Ranging from the Neolithic to the present day, passing through the Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Norman, Angevin, Spanish culture and the motions of the Risorgimento. In fact, it’s not worth visiting Milazzo only for its crystal clear sea and white beaches, but also to get lost in the myriad of historical heritage of this place and, above all, of his peculiar people. Not to be missed are the Bay of Tono, the Promenade and the Port to the west, and the Castle, a real history book with stone pages.

So, we could only add to "Mylae" the adjective "Dulcis", in honor of our multi-year passion: the production of cannoli, cassata and cassatine, according to those methods and recipes that, they too, have their roots in age-old Sicilian tradition.
Maybe we could choose some name more immediate, but what name would have been more dignified and classic but "Mylae Dulcis"?
And although "Mylae Dulcis" isn’t the exact Latin translation of "O sweet Milazzo!" (Purists grant us this license grammar), this name equally describes very well the longed sense of nostalgia that is felt leaving the views, smells and flavors of this enchanting place and reproduces the eagerness to return there as soon as possible.
