The Museum

Begun to build in 1317 from the count Francis The Ventimiglia on the hill of St. Pietro of Ypsigro, from which the appellative of "Castle of the good aere", from which taken name Castelbuono.
The Castle's architecture introduces characteristic compositive Arab-Norman-Sveve. The Castle is constituted from three angular towers and from a preexisting round tower of Byzantine (XII century) epoch. To the inside a court with a staircase gives access to the two superior floors, inside which I today know they find the permanent exposures of urbanism, archaeology, sacred art and modern and contemporary art. To the terrestrial plan shows of contemporary art are regularly entertained. To the second floor, close to the section of Sacred Art the suggestive Palatine Chapel is found, adorned by plasters of the brothers Giuseppe and Giacomo Serpotta performed in 1683, where in a silvery shrine (1521) the relic of the skull and crossbones of Sant'Anna is guarded, patrona of Castelbuono, together with the artistic one "Choir" wooden (1760), work of the sculptor Castelbuonese Domenico Coco. Extinguished the principal branch of the family Ventimiglia, the Castle, in 1920 you/he/she is purchased by the citizen through a public collection, therefore given to the Commune of Castelbuono that has decreed the public fruition of it.
Today the Castle is an active cultural producer, focused on the promotion of the local and Mediterranean historical and artistic heritage, through the contemporary languages.
