Art Stories

3000: these are the years of History and Culture of Sicily: sanctuaries, temples, amphitheatres, cube, thermal baths, muqarnas, golden domes, gothic, lava, limestone, castles, baroque, liberty.

The Sicilian is a mixture of Phoenician, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Norman, Swabian, Angevin, Aragonese and also Italian blood.

Therefore, the head and heart of a Sicilian artist are the complicated combination of all those peoples, combined with the sun and good food.

Sicily is a unique place in the Universe.

Our collections, exhibitions, and programs are always here for you.
