Discovery Tour of Danisinni's Street Art in Palermo

Palermo Trip Overview

Travel through time and space, you will find yourself in the center but in the silence of the countryside.
A tour that tells you the history of the neighborhood, passing in front of the self-built houses decorated with street art that recall La Boca in Buenos Aires. Surrounded by swarms of children who roam free in the neighborhood, like a warm welcome in a South East Asian village.

For years isolated, semi-unknown and among the poorest in Palermo, today the district still maintains a strong popular identity that has not prevented its inhabitants from opening up to the city, also thanks to the inclusion in the UNESCO route. Thanks to a very active parish in the area, today everything happens in Danisinni: donkeys and goats graze in the gardens of the educational farm, actors and acrobats teach circus arts and theater to the children of the neighborhood. The ladies are happy to teach the tastiest typical recipes to those who want to immerse themselves in Palermo.

Stop At: Piazza Danisinni, 90134 Palermo PA, Italy

A journey of knowledge of the soul of Palermo to explore a magical place, meet associations and people committed to improving the conditions of the inhabitants in difficulty and discover how many stories, Arab qanats and rivers still flow in the lap of Palermo.
Danisinni is a fascinating place located where one of the city’s rivers once flowed and papyrus plants grew. Thanks to the abundance of water, until a little over a century ago the district was whitened by the laundry hung in the sun by the washerwomen who served the nobility of the entire city, Danisinni is worth a visit, and will remain in your heart.
