Angelo Motta has been selling his trinkets at the Mönckebergstrasse Christmas market in Hamburg for 39 years. The Sicilian initially wanted to be a monk, but then he fell in love with a woman from Hamburg. Though his craft hasn't made him rich, he says it's made him happy. Says Motta: "Money isn't very important to me".
