The Magnificent Palazzo Zingone-Trabia Reopens in Palermo

December 9, 2021 By Bellarome Travel

Varied and multi-ethnic, capital of one of the largest islands in the Mediterranean, the city of Palermo has always been linked to the sea, a source of life, commerce, and entertainment. The millenary history and the succession of dominations have given the city an immense and varied monumental artistic heritage: from the Punic walls to the Art Nouveau villas, from the archaeological excavations of the Roman remains to the Arab-Norman mosaics, from the testimonies dating back to prehistoric times to the magnificent Spanish palaces, to the baroque, medieval palaces and much more. This mixture of styles together with the climate and natural beauties make Palermo a must for those who make cultural tourism, especially for its historical palaces.

One of the most beautiful palaces is Palazzo Cloos Zingone-Trabia which, after two years, reopens for visits. The palace boasts idyllic neoclassical landscapes and the gracefulness of the representations along its scenic noble floor up to the alcove, characterized by combinations of geometric features and Arabic characters, which narrate the influences of culture exotic of Palermo. So plan your Sicilian tours to enjoy the beauty of these places. The appointment is in front of the Botanical Garden of Palermo and is available for visits are from 17.00 to 21.00.

It is a dwelling built in the second half of the 1800s, set among the splendid works of nature that characterize the ancient district of Kalsa, from the Botanical Garden to Villa Giulia to the Church of Santa Maria dello Spasimo, just outside the ancient bastion of the city. Over the years, the building has been reformulated several times, and is the result of the union of two adjacent buildings, built at the behest of the Cloos family. From the façade, it is difficult to guess the spectacular enfilade of halls that characterize the noble floor, it was then purchased in 1906 by the Zingone family, while the last owners were the Macaluso-Trabia.

Today the building is home to “i-Class”, an international cultural association, a meeting place between different cultures, whose intent is to promote multiculturalism through a diversified offer of training experiences and activities.
