Villa Piccolo di Calanovella

This early 20C villa is now a museum-foundation dedicated to the most famous members of the Piccolo family: Lucio, the poet; Casimiro, a painter and photographer; and their cousin Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, who wrote a large part of his works here. Exhibits include some lovely pieces of furniture, Chinese porcelain and a beautiful collection of watercolours by Casimiro Piccolo.
