Branciforte Palace – The Sicily Foundation Museum

0
Inside the 16th-century Palazzo Branciforti, the ground floor houses the Sicily Foundation's archaeological collection, with 4,751 unique pieces. On the first floor of the building is the large library, containing over 50,000 volumes, and the rooms housing the numismatic (six centuries of the mints of Sicily) and philatelic collections. There are also sculptures by important 19th and 20th century artists such as Giacomo Manzù, Lucio Fontana, Emilio Greco and Igor Mitoraj. The room is dominated by a large fresco by Ignazio Moncada. In 2015, Giacomo Cuticchio's collection of Sicilian puppets was also acquired, which has been housed in the fascinating Monte di Pietà space with its wooden structures and shelving.
