Sicily once again the protagonist thanks to the big newspapers such as Harper’s Bazaarand in particular Palermo with all the travel tips and locations to visit.
“Palermo is one amazing city” thus begins the journalist Serena Roberti on Harper’s Bazaarstarting its journey. Gates, enchanted gardens, ruined walls and noble palaces, without forgetting the gourmet restaurants and the immense cultural heritage this is the splendid city of Palermo.
The journalist invites you to follow a precise itinerary, starting from the center and from Four Songs, with the crossroads between the two main road axes of the city: via Maqueda and Corso Vittorio Emanuele. A stop to try pasta with sardines and cassata, in a bar in the center or in the magical neighborhood of Vucciria formerly called, the “Big bucceria” to distinguish it from other markets of lesser importance. It was, in fact, the most important “piazza di grascia”, or food market of the old Palermo. The word “Bucceria” comes from the French “Boucherie”, which means “butcher shop”, since the market, initially was intended for the sale of meat, and in Palermo, this term also became synonymous with noise, certainly due to the loud shouting that is usually done in the market. Over the centuries the Vucciria was enlarged and modified several times and in 1783 the viceroy Caracciolo wanted to give an organic and decent arrangement to the square, the heart of the market, which was called piazza Caracciolo. Vucciria, today, is a market where everything is sold: meat, vegetables, fish and much more.
