  • Had a full four course lunch here today with coffee for 15 euro per person. Nice staff, prompt service. An oasis of calm in full-on Palermo. Good organic wines to choose from. 
  • The beautiful palazzo Belmonte Riso, in neoclassical style, was designed by one of the greatest architects of the eighteenth century, Venanzio Marvuglia. Overlooking Piazza Bologni, very animated since corso Vittorio Emanuele became pedestrian area, and is home to the Museum of modern and contemporary art of the city. The works exhibited no judgments because I don't have the skills and also because the modern and contemporary art generally leave me indifferent. The Palace was the Fascist party headquarters and also why it was target of bombing during the second world war that reduced almost entirely to a pile of rubble, which has risen in recent years. Current exhibition spaces are used for exhibitions and festivals, including BIAS, Biennale Internazionale Arte Sacra. On the ground floor there is a cafeteria where guests can eat something, even a quick meal, the shelves full of books.

  • Beautiful multifunctional space, where there are works of art by artists from Sicily and not including an installation of Kounellis. We were fortunate to have a guide who was engaging and comprehensive a young intern that gave way and emphasis to visit! Must see!

  • 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.
  • Interesting contemporary art display
  • A waste of 6€ per person. Beautiful building, though.
  • Historical Palace destroyed in the second, today there is a Museum of modern art
