- Ceramics of course. From one of the many shops lining La Scala. Specifically suggested is to see the Museum of Contemporary Ceramic Art realized inside the beautiful Palazzo Ceramico. Located aside the monumental "Scala SS. Maria del Monte" it's a concentration of typical Sicilian food and ceramic articles of more than 20 exhibitors. Remarkable is the permanent show of sicilian muppets of the "Antico Teatro dei Pupi Siciliani". Inside there are available all the principal services you would need (WC, Internet connection, etc.)
