Villas in and around Palermo >>

2018 is set to be an annus mirabilis for Palermo, Sicily’s fascinating, historic capital city. Not only will it be Italian Capital of Culture, but it will also host the 12th edition of Manifesta, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art.


Manifesta 12

Manifesta is a prestigious, internationally acclaimed itinerant festival of contemporary art. Every two years it moves to a new host city, where, through a series of workshops, conferences, publications and educational initiatives, it maps out a "new cultural topography" founded on the prevailing and historical cultural identity of its temporary home. The culmination of the event is a three-month-long exhibition featuring the work of local and international artists. The theme for Manifesta 12 in Palermo  is "The Planetary Garden. Cultivating Coexistence."

Manifesta 12 will run from 16th June 2018 to 4th November 2018. Find out more here >>


Italian Capital of Culture 2018

Palermo’s cup runneth over! After being awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2016, and being chosen as host city for the 2018 edition of Manifesta, the news arrived on 31st January 2017 that Palermo had been chosen as Italian Capital of Culture 2018. 

The title, which comes with a hefty grant to be invested in cultural, artistic and tourist-boosting activities, has been justly celebrated in the city and plans are well underway. 

Activities and initiatives will take place not only in Palermo itself, but throughout the greater metropolitan area, from Monreale to Castelbuono in the Madonie Mountains.

If art and culture are your thing, make sure you visit Palermo in 2018. It's shaping up to be a momentous year indeed.
