Item description for Vucciria by Mauro D'Agati...

“No one dies anymore in Vucciria. Time runs suspended in Purgatory, with a moth-colored rain that corrupts souls and stones the same way.”Giosu Calaciura

Vucciria is the oldest and most famous market in Palermo. Long the living heart of Sicily’s colorful capital, portrayed by masters like Leonardo Sciascia and painter Renato Guttuso, Vucciria today is a place of misery and degradation, victim of the physical and economic collapse of Palermo’s historical center. It is as though a single destiny linked the human degradation and the ruinous state of these places, inuring everyone to the erosion of souls and of walls through decades of immobility: the symbiosis of man and his environment.

Mauro D’Agati has long worked in Palermo’s Vucciria. His powerful photography presents a richly articulated reality, and his unflinching color-saturated images pull us into the atmosphere of one of the world’s most incredible places. He writes that “Vucciria is small, but in reality it is a huge multi-ethnic quarter in constant transformation, with its own rules, its fantastic characters, its grand decadent charm suspended between the past and the present, with no future but that of the biological end of the inhabitants.”
