Mamma Corleone is a cooking class that was born in the historic centre of Palermo, just a few steps from the Cathedral, in a characteristic alleyway of the 17th century, which represents the city in its traditions and culture. The space dedicated to Mamma Corleone is located on the ground floor of a recently restored building used as touristic accomodation, which reflects sicilian artistic expression. The entire location is composed of two rooms. The first room is a fully equipped kitchen for the cooking class , with an old sink made of stones inside a cave, which contributes in creating a magic rural atmosphere. Right next to this room there is another space that serves as a support for the lab. The idea of creating this experience arises from the need of a return to the origins, felt by a young engineer born in Palermo, who emigrated abroad for work, but who left his heart in his homeland. In his stay abroad, Davide, the developer of the project, has discovered how much Sicilian Cuisine is appreciated all over the world. Therefore, he decided to offer tourists the opportunity to learn the recipes that made Sicily famous, not only for its history, but also for its culinary art, full of colours and flavors, which remind us this beautiful land.
