The Sicilian closes. Goodbye to croissants and pizzas in the middle of the night: “Thank you Rieti for welcoming me”

(by Martina Grillotti and Christian Diociaiuti) Closes “The Sicilian”, The well-known nocturnal cornet shop in via Nuova in Rieti. A few steps from the woolen thread of the twenty years of activity – he would have celebrated them in April 2022 – the well-known nocturnal activity will close its doors. Tomorrow, November 6, the last Saturday together with the Rieti, to which “Il Siciliano” has tasted the specialty of a wonderful land (is it called arancina or arancino?) and the declinations of the most known and loved sweets and delicacies, not only Sicilian.

Last batch, a sprinkle of powdered sugar, a scaldatina all’arancino, a look at the photos on the wall dedicated to the beautiful Sicily. Then away, all off. “Tomorrow will be my last day of work here in Rieti, I’m going back to Sicily”, the owner, the historic face of the city center, told RietiLife. Fabio Scelba. “Il Siciliano” for Rieti has been in two decades much more than a croissant: the nocturnal hunger of the young people of the movida or of the workers, of the locals or of the tourists, has always been satisfied in those few square meters of laboratory overlooking Via Nuova. There where once there was a few complaints too many for the comings and goings and where today tranquility reigns and a outside, a safe harbor of never frantic but certainly alive, lapping of the Rieti night in all seasons.

“I want to thank Rieti for welcoming me and for all these years spent together, the whole citizenship that has always shown me affection, the many who have passed by my place in the middle of the night for a quick croissant or a pizza before returning home”. Fabio will return to Sicily, for personal reasons, to be close to the family. For some time, the sign “Cedesi activities” had been posted on the door of the bakery in via Nuova, an appeal that unfortunately was not successful, which is why the place will be permanently closed. A shocking announcement that affects the whole city: the late Saturday night, the professionals looking for a break, the gluttons who have always known they can count on Fabio and his staff, will be orphans of a reference.

“Another piece of Rieti history is going away – comments the director of RietiLife, Emiliano Grillotti – Maximum closeness and gratitude to dear Fabio Scelba and to all the collaborators we have been accustomed to meeting in the bakery at night ”.
