Aspra Anchovy Museum – Bagheria


Visiting the Anchovy Museum is like taking a wonderful journey back to the origins of Sicilian culture.

The creator, Michelangelo Balistreri, is a Sicilian entrepreneur who, thanks to his passion for his village, wanted to create a museum dedicated to the place.

During the visit, he puts on a real show that engages tourists, schoolchildren, authorities and VIPs. The location is characteristically traditional and reflects the Sicilian vocation for fishing and the sea; it is full of photos, boats and tools that are presented by Michelangelo through amusing anecdotes and traditional songs.

Once here, why not take the opportunity to visit Bagheria and its splendid villas.
