PALERMO I first got in touch with Italy in 2017, when I visited Tuscany for a week. I slowly felt in love and had one of these holidays that stays in mind for a long time. Helen, a good friend of mine, who currently moved back to live and work in Palermo (with Siciscatta) told me: if you liked Tuscany that much you will even love Sicily more. And yes, it’s kind of true.

I don’t think I had a “standard” trip as I was involved really soon into a group of local people who gave me a lot of recommendations. What I first recognised in Palermo was the huge amount of noise, traffic and business everywhere, so I decided to go looking for the most peaceful places in and around the city. And here is my (analog) photo story.
