Living in Catania means “breathing” Agata. The main celebration takes place from the 3rd to the 6th of February; on the 12th they celebrate the so called “ottava” and on the 17th of February is the anniversary of her holy relics repatriation to Catania. However, living in Catania means breathing Agata during the whole year. Her altar is always attended by pilgrims and devote people, who pray and ask her for particular miracles and favours. Meeting her during the festivity means meeting a loved person and sharing one’s faith with her.. Living in Catania means “breathing” Agata.
