San Berillo, a district in the historical centre of Catania. A district notorious for being the hub of prostitution in the city. And in all honesty, it is still, more than anything else, renowned for being a Redlight District. Most city dwellers don’t step foot in the maze of narrow streets of San Berillo without good reason. It’s dangerous, they say. But in recent months the people of the area have decided to collaborate with a group of associations in order to change this situation. Once a month, on a Sunday, San Berillo comes alive, and the people of Catania all turn out for a big lunch.
