In spite of the researches done in castiglione di Sicilia and in the Church of Sacro Cuore di Gesù in Solicchiata, it was not possible to find out the origin of this Village and of its name (Solicchiata).
According o some witnesses the village started at he end of feudalism and grew up at the end of 1800. The place was good at growing grapes and at that time the request of wine was high.
At he beginning there was no water nor electricity. Rich men used to build big cisterns and allowed the farmers to take water. Women had to go to the river Alcantara to wash the clothes.

I will leave the translations to the Italians who know what they are doing. The prayer card (Our Lady of Carmel) is signed by a Catholic nun though.
Suor is like Sister.

Mike,
It looks like ARMINA .... I know two elderly ladies with that name....

I've translated the text I put here for you.

Nome:
ARMINA
Significato :
Nome di origine germanica che deriva da ermina o da irmina con il significato di "potente, grande": � l'appellativo del dio Tiwaz di un'antica religione germanica. Questo nome, in forma maschile, appare in un poemetto di Goethe ("Hermann und Dorothea", in italiano "Arminio e Dorotea", 1797).

Name:
ARMINA
Meaning:
A name of germanic origin that derives from 'ermina' or 'irmina' which means "powerful, great": May have been the common name of an ancient germanic religion. This name, in the masculine form, appears in small poem by Goethe "Hermann und Dorothea", in italian "Arminio e Dorotea", and in English "Herman and Dorothy" 1797).

The name is Arminia..I can say this in confidence since my name is actually Erminia and I have often had people mis spell it in the past....

Oh yea..and I like the meaning, too. I know its Greek...perhaps a derivative of Hermes.

Very Happy
