Interesting
This enormous palace was built in the 18C by one of the large noble families in the area, the Bongiornos. Spread over several floors, the palace harbours elegant trompe-l'oeil paintings by Gaspare Fumagalli, a Roman painter who worked in Palermo in the middle of the 18C. They depict both sacred and secular allegories and in settings embellished with medals cartouches and medallions a background of landscapes.
