Di Vittorio’s Palermo Overture captures images from some of the most important cites of his native city. The program notes detail: “Panormus! New Port of the Mediterranean. The bells of the cathedral. The people of the city. La Kalsa. The splendor of the Norman Palace. A walk through the Ballarò Market. The pride of the statues of the fountain of Pretoria Square – Venus, Bacchus and Apollo. The cave of Saint Rosalie. The beautiful scent of Villa Bonanno. A hymn for Palermo, from the Teatro Politeama Garibaldi and the Teatro Massimo.“
