Palermo, war on squatters: the cooperative of fruit and vegetable market operators is born

On the proposal of the municipal councilor for Productive Activities Giuliano Forzinetti, the junta led by the mayor of Palermo Roberto Lagalla approved the establishment of the “General market operators Palermo cooperative society”.
