It’s an old tie that brings together man and food, not only as a biological need but rather than as a sensory path to recognize our own cultural identity, because, since it is true that “Man is what he eats” , it’s even more true that he eats what he is, that is to say food entirely full its culture.

Because you eat certain food with the hands exclusively.
“A tavula è Trazzera”: that is to say the table is the street, an old saying tells in which it is immediately possible to identify the role of the street food “u manciari ri strata” in this part of the world.
A street, a table, a place in the hearth able to unite people beyond the social barriers, the cultural level, who we are and where we come from.
This conviviality, this capacity that people of Palermo to make each place “home”, each smell a remembrance, each flavor a story, will be the leitmotiv of the Palermo Street Food Fest.
