Motion, Passion and Spirit
Sightseeing Street- Photo Walk
Palermo is the capital of the Italian island of Sicily. The 12th-century cathedral of Palermo houses royal tombs and the imposing, neoclassical Teatro Massimo houses the city’s opera. Also in the center are the Norman Palace, a former royal seat that dates back to the 9th century, and the Cappella Palatina with its Byzantine mosaics. Busy markets in Palermo include the Ballarò central street market and the Vucciria market near the port.

La Comunità di Danisinni
Discovers a storytelling space on line to overlook the world, in order to share and embrace life experiences, tales and stories of other communities. A community space which likes to show the various aspects of the historical Neighborhood of Palermo.
At first glance Danisinni describes, immediately, its identity through sounds and colours, dialectal cadences and daily customs around the square. It shows in this way the features of a Sicilian mood by now rare, but very precious.
Passion and fight, among many privations, in order to take care of personal and familiar dignity, proximity bonds and values, that still now, sustain the Danisinni small universe.
Unemployment, crime and the like spread. Today it is mainly women and children who live in Danissini because many men are in prison. For the past five years, however, a movement has started to form in the place that wants to breathe hope back into the spot directly behind the historic center.
Together with the church, a lot is happening in Danisinni right now. Father Fra Mauro, who was a street missionary in South America for years, works with volunteer residents like Luigi and Giuseppe to make the district worth living again.
I can absolutely recommend a photo tour with an expert, firstly you get first-hand information about life in Danissini, secondly it is a little safer if you want to take pictures.
