This special spring exhibition is taking you to the bottom of the sea. The exhibited objects are all findings from the Sicilian coast – a place where reality and mythology meet.

If you are interested in Sicily, the sea or the history of trade, this exhibition will fill you in on the last 3,000 years.

Various objects – including vases, weapons and bronze wares – discovered in shipwrecks will be exhibited. One of the highlights is a life-sized bronze elephant foot.

So don’t miss this chance to time travel and learn more about antiquities and ancient trade!

Don’t miss this occasion to visit the monumental halls when the former water reservoir is filled again and the cisterns appear as a beautiful interplay of light and darkness!
