Palermo (Italy)

Palermo has 720,000 inhabitants and is situated in the homonym province of Italy, being the capital of Sicily. Palermo was founded by the Phoenicians who named it Ziz (flower). It soon came into contact with Greek seafarers and merchants, hence the name Panormus, the Latin for the Greek name that means "all the port". Its period of maximum prosperity is the Norman one, under Federico II (1194-1250), who knew to recruit and use the Arabic, Greek, and Roman cultural heritage.

In the Sicilian capital, prevailing are the tertiary sector and administration activities. The city enjoys a large influx of tourists.
