We took the train from Palermo and walked the small distance to the Villa. As soon as we got there, it was obvious that it was under restoration. This was confirmed by a lady at the gate. Unfortunately my Italian isn't good enough to ask her for a re-opening date, so I suggest intending visitors check before going. As you... More

Not much remains of the baroque character of this palazzo on the edge of Bagheria. Instead, the ample space has been given over to the work of local 20th century artists - especially Renato Guttuso. Since I had never heard of Guttuso before, much less the other artists, I was free to evaluate their work without prejudice. Some was good,... More

Another regional museum that is filled with surprises, housing the works of Guttuso, his personal collection of art and a few other surprises. The modern and traditional paintings are a varied, but impressive collection. Guttuso's photographs are revealing, and an exhibit dedicated to cart making was delightful. An impressive collection of movie posters is also fun and memory invoking.

Fom the Marx Brothers to Federico Fellini . Posters associated with early modern films are featured prominently, with a large selection of movie-posters that range from 1927 through 1984. The exhibit was developed in large part due to the generosity of the Lo Medico brothers, descendants of a Bagheria family of cinema managers.
