What awaits you
A few words about upper class life On the way to Bagheria, we will have an hour to discuss the most curious and hidden facts about the aristocracy of the past and present: how they make a living, how they spend their dolce vita - and is she really such a dolce, what happens at balls and what kind of rest does bohemia choose. The quirks of marquises and princes will surprise and make your imagination work hard
Mad prince's villa Hidden behind tall, spreading palms and orange trees is a mysterious building. Goethe called it "crazy villa", and Dumas said that he had never seen a more bizarre building. What are the secrets hidden by the walls of the house, and why are there so many sinister sculptures of monsters? I will reveal part of the past of Villa Palagonia, and the rest will be anyone's guess
The dream of all the children of the world Visit the Museum of … toys! More than 1800 of the most varied items are collected here - dolls, cars, horses, railways and doll houses.

I will tell the amazing life story of the museum collector Pietro Piraino, and then we will look at the rich collection of toys.
