satiro danzante – Mazara del Vallo
The year before, in the same area, its leg was found. On July 12, 2003, the statue underwent a long restoration project at the Central Institute for Restoration of Rome; the statue is today exhibited in the Museum Satiro danzante. Inside the museum, there are also other finds from the Sicilian Channel (smaller bronzes, pottery, etc.).
Smaller but as valuable in historical importance is Piazza Mokarta, famous for its Norman arch, the only ruin of the castle built by Ruggero II.
And now, intimacy on display in the De Santi-Lombardo house-museum

their passion and their love for art they have turned their house into a small museum of contemporary art.
The house is a museum constantly evolving, an artistic place always open. Its outside areas are dedicated to famous artists such as piazzetta Beethoven, Entrance Ludovico Corrao, square Prassitele, pagoda Pirandello, widening Allen Ginsberg, Socrate’s passage, pagoda Salvator Dalì. Rua Joan Mirò, Avenue Anton Gaudì, courtyard Pietro Consagra.
Every day its collection is enriched with sculptures, paintings, mosaics, ceramics, drawings, art objects and books.
