  • The Museum is housed in an ancient Palace before family Belmonte and subsequently the family rice. Hence the name. Bombed during the second world war because perhaps the seat of P.N.F. or simply because Palermo was heavily bombed and even today you can see the after-effects in the old town! Since 2008 the doors opened in the Central Vittorio Emanuele and came to life the Museum of contemporary art. The building is beautiful and articulate, although lacking elevators but ... missing works from the permanent collection. We couldn't see them because "when you are elsewhere," we don't know which one. On the second floor the extraordinary installation of Kounellis would portend other works of this quality, but ... There are. We tasted and enjoyed a nice temporary exhibition of Salvatore Emblema (beyond the garden), divided into four sections and the second floor another Micol Assael (reading of a wave). We report a beautiful work in the garden of Rizzo "breath", in resin. Nothing else. When will the works from the permanent collection? Various Accardi, Isgrò, Consagra, Long, Anselm, St. Philip, just to name a few? We look (s) trust Manuela and Alessandro Gori

  • The Palazzo Belmonte Riso is a historical building in the city of Palermo, the architectural symbol of its historical period

  • I must admit that the arrangement of the works I liked, unfortunately when I did there were very few visitors. I certainly expected a greater influx of people, too bad the cafeteria on the ground floor has been sadly broken up, I hope to be soon restored. A little care one more wouldn't hurt, even to encourage the many tourists who are in the area. However it is a visit that advice.

  • Nothing to see. €6.
  • The location is nice as the temporary exhibition but I was expecting to see something permanent. The first floor with his 5 rooms was the only one opened space.
  • A waste of 6€ per person. Beautiful building, though.
  • Interesting contemporary art display
  • Nice
