The Sicilian Region, on the recommendation of the Councilor for Cultural Heritage and Sicilian Identity, Alberto Samonajoined the European Museum Nightthe annual event that takes place simultaneously in museums across Europe.
From 7 pm to 11 pm (in some locations at noon) it is therefore possible to visit the main regional museums of Sicily, many of which, for the occasion, will offer guided tours and special installations.
†The Night of the Museums promotes culture – underlined the Regional Councilor for Cultural Heritage and Sicilian Identity, Alberto Samona – and especially invites families to approach art and cultivate beauty. Occasions such as the European Night and Sundays with free entry are a strong incentive to discover our very rich heritage of works of art. Getting closer to the cultural sites, discovering the history of our island and those who lived there, taking the children to the museum, is the best way to get to know Sicily, its identity, its universal dimension. It is the best way to regain awareness of our Sicily, a country that is unique in the world, despite the many, too many injuries received.”
To celebrate the evening, many of the Sicilian museums have planned special initiatives. For more certainty about opening times and visit proposals, it is always advisable to consult the web pages or fb of the individual museum structures.
