Cittacotte di Vincenzo Vizzari

Looking for a great and unique memento from Palermo? Come and visit Cittacotte for creative handmade miniatures of renowned monuments and buildings from the city. Every piece is made in terracotta and shaped by the Italian architect Vincenzo Vizzari, using innovative and exceptional techniques to create an extremely detailed and elaborate design.


Shopping in Palermo is a true delight: a city where you'll find a little bit of everything, from boutiques of high fashion to colourful markets selling fresh fruits, vegetables, and fish, as well as clothes and crafts. At the street markets, you'll find great bargains and experience the unique Palermitan atmosphere. The largest historical markets are La Vucciria, Capo, and Ballarò. If you're looking for famous Italian fashion brands instead, head over to Via Libertà, a street lined with both Italian and European high fashion labels. When in Palermo, bring a typical, hand-craft souvenir back home that can remind you of your trip: painted pottery, coral jewellery, copper-ware or food delicatessen.
