Palermo is a lively, sunny city, full of events that are intended to enhance the city’s culture, history and traditions.

    In the summer, the Teatro Massimo closes and transfers to the open-air to continue its program of musical shows in the “Teatro di Verdura” in Viale del Fante that has 2,200 seats.
  • Festino di Santa Rosaliafrom July 9th to 15th
    For four centuries in the month of July, Palermo has celebrated Santa Rosalia, who saved the city from a terrible plague in 1600 and thus became the city’s patron saint. The festival lasts for a week, a period in which the city is invaded by traveling theatrical and musical shows, all linked to the life of the saint. The height of the celebrations is the charming procession of the monumental cart that crosses the Cassaro as far as the Marina. At the end of the religious procession, there is an amazing fireworks display.

The Festival is made up of a run of shows in which the historical Sicilian “Pupari” families appear, theatrical companies that continue the tradition that UNESCO has proclaimed a “masterpiece of the oral and intangible heritage of humanity”.
