July’s Santa Rosalia fiesta in Palermo, Sicily celebrates the legend of a saint who saved the town from plague. Filmed in black and white, the cityscape is refine, the citizens jolly, and music gentle to the ear. Be fascinated by the richness and openness of the local culture at the heart of this vibrant festival.
