Street Art from a Recent Trip to Sicily

All photos in this post, except three, were taken in Palermo. The photos were taken during a two week trip through Sicily: Palermo, Aeolian Islands, and Mount Etna. We started in Palermo for a few days.

The last time we were in Sicily was in 2008, and we spent one week just in Palermo researching family history and visiting sites. We spend hours in the anagrafe offices getting birth, death, and marriage certificates. The rest of the time we spent visiting the sites of Palermo.

This time around we spent less time in churches and museums because a magical thing happened: we found family! It's a fun story for another blog post. The short story is that we ate and ate and ate, and we didn't have much time for scouting out street art and graffiti. We did our best. Most of the Palermo shots were around the Vucciria, the historical market in the center of Palermo.

Love

A few shots concerning love and matters of the heart.

The work of C215 is always distinctive, even in the dark as with the second photo taken in the Vucciria in the evening.

Lipari

Two of the three photos not taken in Palermo. These two figures were spotted in the Old Marina of Lipari. The street art makes good use of sea and fishing themes.
