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.

"Art is Soul, Feeling, it is the truest part, intimate and suffered expression of those who "feel" life differently...the gift is of few, but each of us perceives its majestic and eternal beauty"
The Governance also suggests
The objective of the Governance is both to safeguard the traditions and ancient crafts of the people of Sicily, and to sustain economically the Artisans and the Artists, both the real ethno-anthropologists of the country.
