A private collection of tiles, fascinating to see. Only three rooms, but beautifully restored and displayed, the English speaking guide was brilliant

A very original experience, very intimate vision of some beautiful objects from the past that have been saved thanks to the vision of the curator.

This is a great place to see if you're in Palermo. It's volunteer-run, and an individual's private collection, so it is essential to make a booking.

Inside is an amazing collection of hand-painted tiles from across Italy, which help to give an idea of the past splendor of Palermo.

Tours are done in Italian and English, and we booked via email, receiving an reply in a matter of hours. The staff were very knowledgeable and accommodating, organising an English tour for us as it was our last day in Palermo.

This is obviously a collection that a few people care very passionately about, and more people should see it. Definitely worth a trip.

This place is really worth a visit, although you will need to make an appointment. The collection of tiles is something really special and it is an absolute surprise walking into this private home, with so much shabbyness just outside the front door and so much beauty within.

Marvellous private collection of tiles in a fascinating building in via Garibaldi, well worth ringing to make an appointment. Charming and informative guide passionate about the collection.
