  • Built at the end of ' 500, Palazzo Branciforte has a history closely linked to the daily life of Palermo. In fact in the early 1800 became the seat of the "pawnshop" non precious goods, called Monte di Santa Rosalia. Among the most valuable pieces stands the charming wooden structure that housed the pawnbroker, composed of racks high up to the ceiling. The Palace, despite many vicissitudes, he continued to host the activity of lien until 1980. Since 2005 the Foundation Banco di Sicilia, after a careful renovation started in 2008 by Gae Aulenti, is today a cultural centre which houses, among other things, an extensive archaeological collection, Numismatic and philatelic collections, a collection of Sicilian puppets and a large library of over 50,000 volumes, as well as an interesting restaurant.
