Gasperini was sacked by Rosanero president Maurizio Zamparini as the Sicilian club sank to the bottom of the Serie A table with defeat to Atalanta on Sunday.
A statement published on palermocalcio.it read: "Palermo have entrusted the care of the first team to Alberto Malesani.
"The 59-year-old coach is taking his first training session now and will be presented at Boccadifalco tomorrow morning."
