Historically, markets (emporio, agora, forum, bazaar, souk) are the place in which the life of Mediterranean communities unfolded.

Often situated in the main square, the market was the place where one bought food, but also where people spoke about foods and recipes, discussed politics, religion and current affairs. It was, in short, the cornerstone of social and cultural relations. Even today, markets are a custom, a way of finding harmony with nature, with its life cycle and seasonality, thanks to the local produce that fill the market stalls. Furthermore, the underlying foundation of market life is a daily participation, where a personal relationship of trust is established between buyers and sellers. All within the framework of a strong symbolic role and ancient tradition that has led to the present day examples of architecture and aesthetic compositions, no lesser than works of art.
