Municipal Gallery

Pinacoteca comunale 2 - Fine Art Produzioni

The “Cultural Places” urban regeneration project started in 2002 and made it possible to provide a new home for the Museum. The former 15th century Convent of the Trinity, which underwent restoration work, became the Municipal Art Gallery in December 2011 and was integrated into the Museum System of Piazza Armerina. The historic-artistic route passes through four rooms, arranged thematically and each has its own color and explanatory panels that serve as an introduction. Through artifacts and documents, the vestibule (white) testifies to some periods in the city’s artistic history early as the bust of Sant’Agata, from the Benedictine church dedicated to Saint Agatha, which was identified as the first seat of the museum and was unfortunately demolished in 1930. The Red Room contains some altarpieces, preserved in the city’s churches that have now been destroyed or desecrated. The yellow room has paintings of various examples of devotional workmanship and fortunes. Finally, the blue room is a real place of remembrance where there are portraits of various prominent citizens of Piazza. This interesting museum houses not only art collections and relics from the past but has become a major meeting point for cultural and educational projects.
