“The City on Stage Tour” is focused on Manifesta 12 works in direct dialogue with the city of Palermo, its communities, traditions, and public spaces. This dialogue is embodied and multiplied in various projects which reinforce community engagement through collaborations and public interventions in the city’s periphery, honour the long tradition of storytelling – or cantastorie – through a series of new narrative productions; recognise the Santa Rosalia procession as an expression of contemporary syncretism, dialogue, and celebration; and mobilise its rich cinematographic legacy to present untold stories about the city.
