The gardens of Palermo

Palermo is not only made up of churches and theaters but also has beautiful gardens. Once I took my nephew to the Villa which is called the “English garden” and he said to me: “Aunt but, in this Villa we going to, do we have to speak in English? ” In short, humor never fails! […]

The means of transport

As you all know in Palermo there is an underground city. Think that from the church of Santa Caterina to the 4 corners there is a door that led the cloistered nuns to go to listen to the mass at the Martorana church and so many paths including those of the Blessed Paoli. Obviously not […]

The air of Palermo

As you know, our staff is a united group and in addition to working together we are also friends. So I dedicate this post to Alessandra to talk to you about the air of Palermo. Once we were around the streets at night, on returning from the Blue Tavern and she said to me: can […]

A strip of wood folded and shaped by the skilled hands of the craftsman. Perforated with care and alternating with single rattles of bronze, steel and copper because each drum (or almost) must “scrusciare”, or make noise. The processed leather is made thin or thick enough to give … the perfect sound! To build a […]

To the Boucherie! Otherwise called Vucciria

Shouts of men from across the street, smells that blend together! A vortex of color and noise: the vucciria! from “vuciare”, screaming of people. Before it was the “boucherie” or the meat market, but today you can find everything. Do you prefer a sandwich with panelle or a little of stigghiola roasted on the grill […]
