September 9 - September 11

Travelers from all over Europe and Italy will meet from tomorrow, Friday 9 to Sunday 11 September in Catania and other locations in the Etna province for the 4th edition of the ‘Ricci Weekender’, an international festival that, between music, cuisine and Sicilian wines, offers in a single bill the best for a weekend of late summer in Sicily.

Born from the collaboration between the Mercati Generali club – the London-based radio Worldwide FM, founded by DJ and producer Gilles Peterson, and the chef Ed Wilson of the Brawn restaurant in the British capital, Ricci Weekender bears in the name the guiding sentiment of his identity that makes it unique on the national scene: creating a club of travelers, the weekenders, who meet every year between Etna and the sea to rediscover the beauty of sharing and being a community.

Among the General Markets, Palazzo Biscari, the courtyard of Castello Ursino, the botanical garden of Radicepura, in Giarre, and the Benanti winery, the festival returns with a refined line-up, more open to club culture but with the usual ambition of connecting jazz and independent music with the best of contemporary cuisine, as usual represented by Ed Wilson, this year supported by the Italian-Egyptian chef Mitshel Ibrahim of the Ombra restaurant in Hackney, and by three local excellences: chef Seby Sorbello, Salvatore Giardina di Vitis vineria, of Castiglione di Sicilia, and Massimiliano Vasta of Vico Astemio, in Riposto.

Among the artists who will perform the Neapolitan musical rediscovery collective Napoli Segreta, Maria Chiara Argirò, the Italian-American composer, producer and musician Alessandro Rebesani, Rebecca Vasmant, Gilles Peterson and Muva of Earth.
