Cuckoo Days

On 30 and 31 March, the Conca D'Oro shopping centre in Palermo will host 'Cucù Easter Fest', an event organised by Giorgio Sicilia, a master watchmaker and regional watchmaking manager. It is an event dedicated to adults and children, which will offer them the opportunity to approach the world of watchmaking and cuckoo. This will be done through a playful and educational itinerary, tailor-made for all those who wish to discover this wonderful universe. In the morning, the exhibition will feature primary school pupils, who will be entertained with animation and themed games. In the afternoon, the cuckoo exhibition will be accessible, where everyone will be able to observe the pieces on display. Adults, too, will thus rediscover an ancient craft in danger of disappearing due to the lack of specialised personnel. At the same time, videos about the cuckoo and the mechanical workings of some of the pieces will be shown. For further information:
