Palermo’s genuine street art boasts many pieces that talk about the city: the ubiquitous octopus that symbolizes the mafia, Santa Rosalia, the patron saint of the town, the delicious Sicilian cannoli, and Palermo’s fishers can be found everywhere. Street art in Palermo is tailored for the people walking past it rather than for Instagram: street art at street level for all those eating, drinking, smoking, cooking, praying, kissing, talking, and running after a ball in the streets of Palermo.
