  • in our "grand tour" of Sicily, over forty days, we met extraordinary archaeological excavations but dominated by the carelessness of the directors. Churches and buildings closed because of lack of staff, and other places the employees crowded into the garden to smoke or intent to type on your phone. Others still in decay. Visiting Palazzo Bongiorno in Gangi think every Italian feels proud of how it is maintained, valued, led. A big round of applause to administrators. The Palace was built at the behest of Francesco Bongiorno and designed by the Architect Gabriel's younger brother. The decorations were painted by Gaspare Fumagalli, excellent artist for the decorations and objects and was assisted by father-in-law Peter Martorana, excellent artist for the figures. The result is excellent. Even today the paintings are perfectly preserved, fresh, readable now as then. The Palace was the seat of various academies, the Industrious, of the unwary and finally good taste. Searches that led them through the study and application of reason, of grace and Justice, were insights to achieve their inner Temple and worked hard for their elevation to the sky, the Sun, the light. In practice it was a real Masonic Lodge, protected among others by Prince Sangro di Napoli. Moral concepts pervade all esoteric frescoes, they built a dwelling Esoterica, as many of the villas of Bagheria. Palazzo Bongiorno is one of the most beautiful architectural works of the Madonie, and we are proud that it is the Town Hall of the "most beautiful Village of Italy". Manuela and Alessandro Gori

  • Is a private building of the 18th century, beautiful family home Bongiorno. The Palace was built on other existing structures, over the years it has undergone various transformations but still retains its original structure. To design it was Gabriel Happy Bongiorno, architect and one of the owners of the building. Once became an important center of culture, the Academy of the industrious. In 1828 the family Bongiorno lapses and descendant, Don Carmine, leaves all assets to the Archbishopric of Palermo. In 1967 the town of Gangi buy the Palace, now the headquarters of the City Council. Visiting its rooms you will plunge, thanks to the mysterious frescos of Fumagalli and the Martorana, in the magical atmosphere of the splendid palaces of the 18th century!
