Strange. I also have fonts there... (nad FiraGo and/or Iosevka makes the 
first lualatex run ultra slow, 15 minutes of cache building).

You should be able to see them using `fc-list`; otherwise, try to issue
`fc-cache -f -v`, it should output (among three millions things) 
something like:

/home/romano/.local/share/fonts: caching, new cache contents: 760 fonts, 
0 dirs
