The artwork in the Sicilian culture

By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation

Palazzo Biscari is a beautiful palace in Sicilian Baroque style in the heart of the city of Catania, a few steps from Piazza Duomo, Via Etnea and the famous fish market. It was built in 1763 and was visited by some of the most famous people of the time, including the writer Johann Wolfgang Goethe on May 3, 1787.
