“Giugno la falce in pugno” (June the crescent in your hand), o “Giugno ciliegie a pugno” (June a handful of cherries)
The sixth month is a very important season in the island, where everything comes back to life, when the pantescan earth, lavish and only apparently hard soil, starts to give its fruits. In the wisdom of the popular sayings is where the abundance of Pantelleria becomes capers, in may the harvest starts, and the thousands of colors of the fields with the pantescan gardens full of flowers, the green shades of the vineyards, that will become the main character of the “eroic” harvest.
June, the sunny month
This is one of the names given to the sixth month of the year: as a matter of fact, the 21st of June is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. What a better occasion than this one to indulge yourself a weekend in Pantelleria sunbathing? Mild temperatures, more sun than the rest of the year: the sun tan lovers are advised.

Mercury can be seen at the end of the month to the West, lower than Venus and aligned with Castor and Pollux, the main stars of Gemini, one of the main constellations of this month. Venus can be seen in Gemini constellation, and then goest through Cancer and finishes in Leo. At the end of the month Mars will rise in the oriental horizon before midnight, while Jupiter can be seen for many weeks in the Libra constellation.
