Tourists flock there, but writer Roberto Alajmo is a native. Growing up in Palermo, its turbulent politics and mafia influence never dented the passion that Alajmo felt for his city. He shows us the famous sights, the scenes of murders, the illegal building trade, the sea, the cliches, the thoughts of the Sicilians in general and of the inhabitants of Palermo in particular. For Sicilians, Palermo is an Aladdins cave- the deeper you delve, the more treasures you will find.
