SICILIAN BEACH

MONDELLO BEACH

Palermo, Sicily  2018 

With soft white sand, pastel coloured changing huts and shallow, crystalline water, Mondello is THE beach in Palermo. The coloured cabins, introduced in the post-war period, are set up to form courtyards and for decades they have been (and for many they still are) the heart of Mondello’s seaside life. The same families rent them one season after another, finding them every summer in the same place, just like in a house at the sea. These cabins have shaped  the entire life of many Palermitans. Their childhood passed bathing in Mondello and playing between the wooden cabins,  the first love and the kisses stolen in the shade of the light blue wood,  naps and dinners in the family, endless canasta games.
