religious tolerance, open to migration and to the encounter of civilisation and humanity.
In addition to its more than 50.000 inhabitants, Mazara del Vallo hosts 3.000 migrants,
mostly coming from the Northwest African region of Maghreb, who have been employed
in the fishing, agricultural and handicraft activities of the city for over 25 years. Mazara
del Vallo is a city that has a rich history and precious cultural traditions.
Due to its geographical position and to several historical events, Mazara del Vallo has
always been a city open to the encounter and the exchange of various ethnic groups,

religions and cultures. Historically speaking, the city has sought its economic fortunes on

the sea and through several alliances and cooperations amongst the people of the
Mediterranean Sea. Over the course of time, Mazara del Vallo repossessed the best events
of its historical memory, with the intent to reaffirm and enact the principles of cultural
pluralism and its peaceful coexistence. In this sense, Mazara del Vallo established itself as
an experimental laboratory for the development of a multi-ethnic society. The
