Really beautiful presented display and history of tiles from the two kingdoms of Sicily. A private collection, displayed in the house of the collector. Well worth to visit

An important Sicilian cultural experience
Oct. 2020
This is an interesting opportunity to see historic aspects of Sicilian culture and well worth it, but access is unusual! You will be visiting a private house by appointment made via email or phone (an English phone option is available). At the appointed time (but not before!) show up at Via Giuseppe Garibaldi 11, which from the outside is a fairly unassuming building whose ground floor is under major restoration, taken back to the brick by the builders working there. There are museum banners attached to the first floor balconies but they are fairly subdued and discreet. Ring the museum doorbell and you will be allowed in to enter a courtyard and up a set of stairs into the first floor apartment. There your Italian or English speaking tour guide will spend about 20 minutes taking you through the rooms decorated with tiles of different periods and will then leave you so that you can spend a further 20 minutes exploring the rooms for yourself and taking photos. A genuine cultural experience.

An inspiring, unforgettable experience for anyone interested in Sicilian floor tiles & the art of collecting
Sep. 2020
The moment Claudio opened the door to the first room, I was incredulous. This is an outstanding private collection of floor tiles from Sicily and Naples dating back to at lest the 16th century. It literally took my breath away.

Claudio took me on a private tour since I was the only English-speaking individual there at the time. (Another group of Italian speakers was taken around by a different guide.) He is eager to share his knowledge and also very kind -- really the most gracious guide you could imagine. It was clear that he genuinely cares about the collection.

What's also wonderful -- and unusual for private collections and palazzo tours -- is that they really allow you to have as much time as you want with the work. (Obviously within reasonable limits: the museum is only open for a couple of hours at a time.) The tour itself takes about 20 minutes. Then, you get to spend as much time as want with the work (gaping at the work, if you're like me), to look closely so as to really appreciate the craft involved in these tiles.

This was one of my favorite experiences in the month I spent in Palermo. The love and care that has gone into this collection is inspiring.

Note that the owner has collected some other items as well but I will leave that to you, dear reader, to discover.

Beautiful tiles collection
Jul. 2020 • Solo
Beautiful tiles collection of different centuries. Very interesting guidance tour. Worth to see! You have to ring the bell because it is a private flat. Look at No. 11.
