Calatafimi is the place where all four of Blaise Tobia's grandparents were born. Several first cousins
and their children still live there, or nearby. He has photographed Calatafimi and its surroundings
numerous times since 1989. In May, 2004, he was able to photograph its widely-known
3-day town festival, which once occured every third year but now occurs only about once per decade."
