Immense altarpieces, paintings on wood from the Antonellian school rarely exhibited to the public, illuminated codices and ancient volumes, but also busts, historical uniforms, furnishings and sacred vestments. These are the works of art that will be on display from 20 April to 28 July 2024 at the Diocesan Museum of Catania in the exhibition “From Monasteries and Convents”, dedicated to the artistic heritage coming from places of worship in the Etna area and transferred to State property in the aftermath of the Unification of Italy.

The exhibition will be open from Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., on Tuesdays and Thursdays also from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. It will also be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the following Sundays and public holidays: 21 and 25 April, 3 May, 2 June and 7 July. Free admission.
