One of the most recognizable symbols of Sicilian folklore, the Sicilian cart (carretto siciliano) is an ornate, colorful horse- or donkey-drawn cart that originated in the early 19th century in Sicily to transport goods. Carts were used for hauling miscellaneous light loads, such as produce, wood, wine, and people, called “Carretto del Lavoro” (cart for work) and also carts for festive occasions such as weddings and parades called “Carretto de Gara’. The wheels were very light and very high in order to overcome the trecherous terrain of the mountainside. The colors of Sicily's flag, yellow and red, feature prominently on the carts. Nowadays, the wheel has become an iconic symbol in the world of jewelry.
