One Day in Palermo

Part of: Amica at Somerset House - Spring

Course description

Palermo is located on the Italian island of Sicily. Today, it is the capital of the autonomous Sicilian Region, but it has also been an important city under Phoenician, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Norman, Aragonian, Holy Roman and Bourbon rule.

Its churches, markets, palaces and piazzas are just the most recent layer in a rich history that included pleasure gardens and pavilions for its Muslim rulers, gold, mosaic-covered chapels for the Norman kings, and underground catacomb burials for mummified Capuchin friars and local residents, used until the 1920s.

This course will be part virtual walking tour with photographs and images, part exploration of Palermo’s history through architecture, with a focus on the Arab-Norman cathedrals and palaces and the busy street life of the city.
