Museo Archeologico “Antonino Salinas”

description
The museum, formed as the University Museum in 1814, is the oldest in Sicily and was founded with a typically 18th century collecting imprint, thanks to the donations of several Palermo nobles, first among them Giuseppe Emanuele Ventimiglia, Prince of Belmonte.

He donated his own collection of paintings, drawings and prints. After the Unification of Italy, it became ‘national’. It was enriched through acquisitions and archaeological researches conducted in those years. This activity continued throughout the 20th century and endowed the institution with a vast amount of material to trace Sicily’s historical and cultural course from Prehistory to the Middle Ages.
Since 1866, it has been housed in what was once the 17th century House of the Philippine fathers at Olivella in Palermo. The current exhibition on the ground floor is organised around the splendid porticoed main cloister, and the entire eastern wing of the building is dedicated to the extraordinary artistic testimonies from the Greek colony of Selinunte.
A multi-purpose space, created from a third courtyard, exhibits the complex of lion head waterspouts of the Temple of Victory of Himera and the great Gorgon mask from Temple C of Selinunte.
