Welcome Emanuela :-)

Are you referring to Palermo the City? or to Palermo the Province?

There are many towns (comuni) in the Province of Palermo.
See list of towns in Palermo Province (including city of Palermo) at this site...
http://en.comuni-italiani.it/082/index.html

Records are kept at the town level.
To request birth records you should know the town.

There are some records online for Palermo (the city). See this site
