In the year that just ended, Palermo has been the Italian Capital of Culture and seat to Manifesta, the traveling art biennial. A winning combination, which brought to the city dozens of events, exhibitions, shows, installations, a large number of artists from all over the world and thousands of visitors.
Thanks to it, Palermo has entered the prestigious ranking that Artribune, the renowned Italian cultural platform, makes every year, putting together the best of the past twelve months.
A few days ago, the list of winners in the various categories was published.
The best 2018 event was Manifesta and, consequently, the city of the year could only be Palermo. A recognition that we are proud of and that encourages all the people of Palermo to do more and better, on the path towards the cultural and social rebirth of the city.
Our guests will like to know that some of the great exhibitions that have marked the last months of 2018 are still ongoing: for example, the exhibition of paintings by Antonello da Messina, housed in Palazzo Abatellis; the exhibition dedicated to the patron saint Rosalia, set up at the Palazzo Reale; and the exhibition of treasures of the tsars at Palazzo Sant’Elia, which collects splendid works from the four Russian imperial residences.
