As we are close to The day of the dead – il giorno dei morti – we have here a Sicilian Saying somehow close to the topic.
Sulu pa morti un c’è rimediu
“Only for death there is no remedy”
A Sicilian saying, but also very present in southern Italian culture, which translated means ‘only death has no remedy’. In fact, the onset of death is the only certain thing in human and non-human existence. And death itself, according to the proverb, is the only certain thing for which there is no remedy. Here is probably summed up a bit the character of the Sicilians who always strive to solve problems by not crying over themselves but always finding a remedy, except for death, precisely.
