Palermo CAPITAL OF CULTURE
The cultural richness and beauty of Palermo issue from its thousand souls, effect of dominations, arrivals and departures, hospitality and interrelations. Its atmosphere, language, monuments, cuisine and urban fabric, all bear witness to this.
A stratified and syncretic glory that can be easily seen in the art, in the delicate curves of an arabesque, on a capital, in between pieces of the mosaics, in a mischievous putto, in the classical architecture and the liberty spirals or, again, in the Opera dei pupi; a glory which can just as easily be seen in the dozens of events, seminars, exhibitions, conventions and shows on offer to the people of Palermo and tourists all year round.
Palermo is a multiethnic mosaic that expresses the beauty in the mix of different cultures.
Palermo, Italian Capital of Culture, is a capital of Cultures, artistic culture and others, not only a full calendar of events but a vision that sees culture as a “capital” around which the entire community will grow.
