The Cassero
Palerme - Sicily

The  word Cassero or Cassaro,

(Quarterdeck), is of Arabic origin. 
It means Quasr, the castle or the fortified gate of a town, but it is also a term to define the main streets.

Cassero is the street of shops and prestigious artistic hand-crafted production, and for business activities and commerce. 

It splits up the district into two parts, the Medieval centre and the Risorgimento area from Porta Nuova  (New Gate) and Porta Mazara.

After Garibaldi’s landing, it was named
Via 11 Maggio.
