A February weekend in Sicily: Etna or Agrigento Mandorlo in Fiore Festival?

When thinking about visiting Sicily, one usually thinks either about spring or summer as the ideal time to enjoy the island. However, every month of the year can offer special Sicilian experiences to visitors and Siciliani alike.
I must admit that last weekend (20th-21st of February) choosing what to do was pleasantly hard. "Shall we go to Etna or to Agrigento Mandorlo in Fiore Festival?
We went to have fun on the Etna slope while our friend Andrea went to Agrigento.

Picturing Sicily

Film directors and photographers have often been inspired by Sicily and many have used it as a backdrop to their films or placed it center stage in their photographs.

It is one of those places where great pictures are easy to come by: Mediterranean sunlight, evocative landscapes, interesting architecture, sharp social contrasts, intense religious rituals, and faces, looks, postures and gestures that are steeped in history and tell a full story in just a frame.
