The oldest business sign in Palermo, a Liberty ( Art Nouveau) mosaic of the goddess Demeter, goddess of grain, which advertised the only recently defunct Panificio Morello, a bakery in the Capo street market, is beng removed from its site on the front of a derepit building and being taken to the Palazzo Aiutamicristo for restoration. Various non-profits and for-profit business raised the 8,000 euros necessary for the restoration. The vice president of the quartiere sensitized the people of the Capo, who are extremely fond of the Demeter mosaic and who have never defaced it, to the need for restoration. The people of the Capo let her go only on the condition that she would be returned to them.
