“Make Cous Cous, not walls” is the edition 2019’s slogan of San Vito Cous Cous Fest, a traditional festival set in one of the most beautiful sea place in Sicily, or rather San Vito Lo Capo.

This edition the festival turns 22 years and, over the years, it has become one of the most important in the world both for cous cous lovers and for who cook it.
