In the historic district of Kalsa, overlooking the sea, is Palazzo Butera, an eighteenth-century aristocratic palace, purchased by Massimo and Francesca Valsecchi in 2016. The new owners have financed a complete structural and artistic restoration of the building with the intention of opening the property monumental to public enjoyment. From June 2018, Palazzo Butera is open to the public as an "open yard" and has already welcomed thousands of visitors, waiting for the completion of the restoration work that we will finish in 2020. Today, in addition to the two temporary exhibitions dedicated to the "Città del Principe »And« Vita a Palazzo», some works of ancient and contemporary art from the Valsecchi Collection were scattered throughout the visit. It is a preview of the installation that will be proposed on the second floor, where exchanges with international museums and the collection will allow us to cross different eras and cultures, giving back to Palermo its dimension of an open door to the Mediterranean.
