Visit Palazzo Branciforte, a sixteenth century building in the heart of Palermo, recently restored by the great Italian architect Gae Aulenti. The Palazzo is an area open to the public where history meets archaeology, modern and contemporary art, with a historical library containing more than 40,000 books, and a place for the great Italian culinary tradition (the Gambero Rosso cooking school). The Palazzo is home to exhibition areas for the important Fondazione Sicilia collections of archaeological artifacts, coins, stamps, tin-glazed pottery (maiolica), sculpture and fresco on panel.
