With the Roman Empire’s downfall Sicily’s practicability lives a long period of degrade and decadence and most of the transportations take places by sea. The cart starts spreading in the whole island only at the start of the firsts decades of the 19th century and soon enough becomes Sicilians favourite mean of transportation, they were intent on working the land or transporting goods between different areas of the island. If necessary, it becomes the privileged means of transportation to carry wives and children to the beach or the country.
Carpenters and engravers used to realize all the wood parts, a blacksmith took care of the wrought iron elements, the “carradore” (wheelwright) was responsible for the task of assembling all the parts and then the painters painted and decorated the walls of the cart’s case and all the surfaces that could be decorated with fantasies, figures and scenes. In this way, the Sicilian cart from means of transportation, over the decades, evolves and becomes a true work of art.
