From architecture to culinary wonders, from the mountains to the sea, from internationality to provincialism, individualism and lawlessness, everything can live together, as in a short story by Luigi Pirandello (Agrigento June 28, 1867 - Rome December 10, 1936), or in Il Gattopardo, the only novel by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa (Palermo 23 December, 1896 - Rome July 23, 1957), or in the paintings of Renato Guttuso (26 December 1912 - 18 January 1987), as his most famous, "Vuccirìa" (1974), representing one of the street markets of Palermo, presently preserved in Palazzo Steri, Palermo.
Language corner: the term "Vuccirìa" comes from the French "Boucherie" (= butchery), since originally, in the Angevin period, the market was used as a slaughterhouse and for the sale of meat. Later on it became a market also for the sale of fish, fruit and vegetables. In the Sicilian language "Vuccirìa" has come to mean "confusion."
