Welcome back to another Sicilian Saying blog post! In each post, we’ll explore a different proverb, uncovering its translation and the wisdom it holds. Today, we’re kicking things off with a captivating saying:
Dintra comu ‘na gaddina e fora comu ‘na regina!
“At home as a hen and outside as a queen!”
This proverb vividly depicts a common scenario: a woman may not focus much on her appearance while at home, embracing a natural and relaxed style. However, when she steps out, she transforms, taking great care of her appearance, dressing elegantly and applying makeup, akin to a queen.
It’s a fascinating insight into the duality of personal presentation and the cultural importance placed on public appearance. What are your thoughts on this proverb?
