The historic market Ballarò of Palermo, in the neighbourhood known as Albergheria, is the oldest and biggest among the markets of the city.
For about half a century, after World War II, Ballarò was increasingly depopulated as families moved to airier suburbs. Today there are over 14 ethnicities in Ballarò and more than 25 languages spoken: migrant communities, students, professionals, historic merchants and new entrepreneurs coexist.
