MUSEUMS IN MESSINA

Museo Regionale (Regional Museum):
exists since 1914 and can be located at the end of Viale della Libertà. It conserves sculptures, decorations and architectonic elements which were recovered after the disastrous earthquake of 1908. The new seat is still in phase of construction and can be found next to the actual one; which will then in turn be transformed into a congress centre. The eras covered by the finds go from the 12th to the 15th Century. A room, the 4th, is dedicated to the great Renaissance artist Antonello da Messina (amongst which there’s an important polyptych example exhibited) and other artists in the same circle and examples of Flemish art. The paintings cover a vast era and arrive at the end of the 18th Century. Another fundamental room is the 10th which conserves two works by Caravaggio (Resurrection of Lazarus and the Adoration of the Shepherds), painted by the artist during his stay in Messina whilst on his escape journey.
