Palermo Modern Art Museum


First and foremost, the Galleria D’Arte Moderna Palermo (or the Modern Art Museum of Palermo) has changed location. The old location was by the Politeama, clear across town. The new location is Piazza Sant’Anna (via Sant’Anna 21) which is near the intersection of via Roma and via Vittorio Emanuele. The new location is beautiful and the collection was a pleasure to visit. (It happened to be free this week – some national week of free museums or something like that.) The gallery showcases the works of Sicilian arts. We especially appreciated the work of Francesco Lojacono.

(On the brochure cover is one of the several versions of The Sin by Von Stuck.)
