The paper aims to present a study about gentrification in the Albergheria-Ballarò neighborhood in Palermo and the consequences of this process on the formalization of a local street market. The main focus will be on the neighborhood’s transformations and the social role of the market. In particular, the article highlights how San Saverio Market plays a fundamental role of social dumping in the contrast to marginality, that the current process of formalization should carefully maintain.
