Vucciria a Palermo: narrazioni contemporanee da Guttuso alla Street Art

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Piazza Caracciolo in the Vucciria in Palermo was one of the oldest and once flourishing marckests in the city. Unfortunately, depopulation before and abandonment of the marcket afte wards led to the decline of the marcket and its historical architectural consistency. Vucciria, in contemporary times, was the inspiration of artists, writers and directors, who like Guttuso, Sciascia, Taravella and Camilleri, that have immortalized it in their works. A renewed interest for the conservation and enhancement of the area it also, today, expressed by Street Art, which it adds and indicates a new life for the historic city.
