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.
