         A piscaria

In the heart of the historic center of Catania, every morning a curtain is opened.
The fish market, commonly called "piscaria" is a real show with a fascinating folklore, in some ways disquieting, to which is it difficult not being breathless.
The scenography is composed with banks of marble, wood or stone and red marquees. The actors are merchants, whose faces, smiles, and their voices compose a unique atmosphere in this open-air theater.
