The activity that takes place in them is not only material, but also social and cultural.In recent decades a strong decay is observed not only in a part of the historical center of Palermo (Sicily), but also in the relatedsymbols. The aim of this work is to investigate in detail which causes are associated with the decline of one of the most famoushistorical markets in Italy, the Vucciria, so finely described by Leonardo Sciascia, Renato Guttuso and Andrea Camilleri.
