The artwork in the Sicilian culture

By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation

Ballarò is one of Palermo’s renowned open-air markets. An unmissable stop for the visitor, in which oriental and Sicilian atmospheres mix, together with the voices of the merchants and the scent trails of the varied Sicilian street food.

The painting also features some of Palermo’s distinctive characteristics: the palm tree, the hanging clothes and the red domes of some of its ancient churches.
