Garaffo genius – The legend

In front of the statue of the Genius of Palermo, with the body of a young man and the face of a crowned old man, there used to be a fountain (later moved to Piazza Marina): according to legend, whoever drank its waters would then forget Palermo and all their loved ones, so much so that it was once said that those who had forgotten their hometown had 'tastatu l'acqua di lu Garaffo'.
