It is said that in the Arab quarter of Palermo, the Kalsa, during the Arab domination, lived a beautiful girl who spent her days taking care of the flowers on her balcony. One day, a young Moor, passing under the girl's balcony, saw her take care of her plants and fell madly in love with her. He immediately declared his love to the beautiful girl, who struck by the audacity of her suitor, reciprocated the feeling. Unfortunately, the young Moor was already married with children and, when the girl learned that he would return to his family, she killed him in his sleep the night before he left.
She cut off his head and used it as a vase for basil, a royal plant symbolizing love and passion.
So the young man remained with her forever. The beautiful vase aroused the envy of her neighbours, who thus decided to make Moor's head-shaped vases.
