  • Lots of motherhood-themed pieces. The pieces that depict St Agneta were a welcome contrast to the many traditional devotional pieces you can see all over Catania. A small and well-thought out gallery,...  more »

  • Entering gave me more the feeling of a gallery than a museum.
  • There are places where the atmosphere unique, magical, timeless. The MacS is one of these, the museum combines the beauty of art and culture from the past to modernity in contemporary art. The prestigious permanent collection of figurative art of MacS includes: the "International" Section and the "Italian" Section. The Museum houses some 60 works including paintings, sculptures, and fotomanipolate, making room for young talent and established artists. Also the MacS is a dynamic Museum, welcoming, opened the exchange of views and dialogue. I highly recommend visiting this little gem

  • I visited the Macs last month, when it was an exhibition by a young emerging artist Caroline and I was pleasantly surprised, not only for the works on display, exquisite workmanship, but also for environments, which maintain the baroque structure, creating a very interesting contrast between past and present. Surely the future exhibition will be of equal intensity.
