I was gutted, but then I found an online version of the exhibition on Google Arts & Culture. Of course, it’s not the same as the real thing, but it’s better than nothing.
The exhibition was about 4,000 years of Sicily’s history, an island that has been shaped by Phoenican, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arab and Norman invaders and settlers. Prosperous and diverse, culture and art flourished.
Through the website I was able to read about the history of Sicily and look at some of the amazing artefacts that were visible in the exhibition. I would recommend that anyone unable to visit an exhibition for real check the Google site out – it’s a wonderful resource.
