Baroque Beauty: A Dance of Lava and Design

In the heart of Catania, the city's signature black lava Baroque architecture is an enduring testament to its history. The awe-inspiring palazzi, reborn from the fiery eruptions of Mount Etna, serve as timeless masterpieces. Palazzo Asmundo stands as one such jewel, lovingly restored by a local entrepreneur with an ardour for art. The vision for this architectural gem was clear: to depict Sicily as a vibrant mosaic of creativity.


Celebrated artists, from Michael Anastassiades to Walton Ford, pour their narratives into their art, designs, and furnishings. As you enter the reception, be prepared for a whimsical greeting by Domenico Pellegrino's towering pink flamingo and his sculpted companion, Spiderman.

A Tapestry of Rooms: Every Stay, a New Story

Nestled across two levels are eleven distinctive rooms, each echoing different tales from Sicily's rich tapestry. The main floor is home to six 'art rooms', each paying homage to mythological figures from the Catania region. Venture a few steps up, and the following five rooms transport you to the opulent 18th-century Grand Tour era when the European elite traversed Sicily in their pursuit of art and culture. Each room, from the Bellini suite with its ode to composer Vincenzo Bellini and its beckoning grand piano to the Uzeta room where showers cascade from a lofty five-metre height, promises a singularly immersive experience.

Exceptional Service in an Artistic Ambience

During a visit, expect passionate employees ready to unveil the tales behind each 'art room', and offer insights into ongoing local exhibitions. For those seeking moments of introspection, a serene reading space awaits, while a grand reception room, punctuated by an adjoining dining area, beckons for social engagements. And should you wish to host an intimate dinner, a well-equipped kitchen is at your disposal, given a full-floor booking.

Heart of Catania: Where Every Step Tells a Story
