Technically speaking the sicilian name is ”pruvulazzo” or ”polvere” (dust) in italian, and the tool we use it’s called ”cuteddazzu” in dialect, translated as cutlass in english, since it’s made out big blades going 10/15 cm deep in the land and they raise the dust. Ancestors said that stabbing the land creates a patina on the grapes and refreshes the soil.
