Quattro Canti, where the four ancient quarters of Palermo meet at the intersection of Via Maqueda and Corso Vittorio Emanuele, is also known as Teatro del Sole. Locals call it Teatro del Sole because throughout each day and throughout each season, the sun lights up the statues on the 17th century building facades like a spotlight.
