A walk through the streets of the historic center on the hunt for…monsters! Visit some of the most evocative places in Palermo, listen to the stories of the fights between terrible monsters and courageous heroes who tried to bring peace not only to the city but also to Sicily. From the metopes of the Archaeological Museum that tell the most famous myths of Greek Sicily, to the beasts of the Praetorian Fountain inspired by classicism, up to the worst monster of all: the terrible mafia octopus that still scares us today. Imaginary but also real heroes, whose stories still teach us to become more aware citizens. An itinerary to fascinate but also educate the little ones with the hope of being able to say “everything ended well”.
