Who we are
We are a “Widespread Museum”, meaning we are open and that every element of our city, including people with their stories, are the great treasure that we want to offer to those who come to visit us. The best way to get to know us is to use all the senses: the taste of our foods, the colours of our lands, the sounds of our voices, the works of our hands, the scents of our fruits. A uniqueness that you will never forget.
Our goal is to create awareness of the immense historical heritage of art, craftsmanship, landscape, and food and wine of our territory. It is our duty to rediscover, protect and enhance it.
Our narration and actions make it available to others by creating an economic model where ethics and results are no longer in opposition. It’s the Economy of Beauty.
What we offer
The magic of a sweet as beautiful as a work of art first you will admire it and then taste.
Martorana fruit is a paste made from almonds, the shape of a fruit is made from it and then painted until it looks real. It was born in 1500 when the nuns of the Martorana Convent in Palermo painted sweets to embellish the fruit trees of their garden on the occasion of an important autumn visit.
With our pastry chefs you will learn how to make almond paste, how to shape it and finally paint it, to the point that you won’t want to eat it so as not to ruin such a beautiful masterpiece.
You’ll bring the secret back home with you and make it again in your kitchens.
The duration of the experience is approximately 2h30
