  • The walls (and not the wall, as it was erroneously written) of bad, or rather the passeggiata delle mura delle cattive, is a long terrace that faces the foro italico. Its function was to give the possibility to the widows of sailors ("captivae doloris", or "prisoner of pain" in Latin, from which the alternative spelling "bad") you can walk "on the waterfront" but, in the meantime, keep at some distance from the classical stroll at the Foro Italico. aside from the overhead view on the waterfront and the history of the name who definitely curious, that's all.

  • Now closed to the public, we revisited at the openings of fai, managed beautiful context and small walk between the sea and the ancient palaces overlooking Via dell'alloro. Sometimes I think about how much should be beautiful and evolved Palermo at the time, the exact opposite of the third world today.

  • The poor were widows of sailors. There are two different hypotheses about the origin of the name; the first: when widows were they doing walks away from prying eyes, but this does not explain why they were bad; the second hypothesis: from that vantage point could see the harbor and watched the arrivals of ships and sailors who came down to Earth to visit their women, definitely not them, widows, this made the incattiviva, from this: the hard way. The walls of the bad, in March of 2014 have been subject to seizure, almost looks like a cursed place; many architectural artifacts were stolen, damaged or vandalized, the train reaches up to the present day, today opened in fits and starts, when events take place open, but mostly tourists find closed the great gates of access. Very beautiful antique palaces that overlook, are inhabited and clearly visible from afar. When you've been there? I indicated the date furthest, actually I'm not sure that hasn't happened before, even several years earlier.
