If you want to enjoy a photographic exhibition sipping a cocktail, the perfect occasion is April 18 at the Casa dei Tre Oci with the Photo Aperitif with the Nardini Distillery and the exhibition of the 300 photographs by Palermo Letizia Battaglia.
Made famous mainly by her photographs of the mafia, the photographer has dedicated her life to the story of the daily events in the city of Palermo, of its traditions and of the women and children who live there. Her photographs are important testimonies of the years of the mafia crimes and of the activities of the Corleonesi clan in Sicily.
