Palermo Culture

One of the most important traditions for the city of Palermo is the antico mito delle vampe (the ancient myth of the flames), which occurs at the same time as the festival of  Saint Joseph (Sant'Giuseppe ). The city's inhabitants collect up old furniture, tables, and other wooden items, which are then to be burnt in one, large bonfire around which the younger people run, jump, and sing praises to the Saint.

The ceremony's intent is to chase away damaging influences, hailing the arrival of the spring ( the event coincides with the spring equinox), and wishing the city a new, positive season.
