This striking palazzo off Corso Umberto, is up a flight of stone steps, brightly decorated with seasonal flowers and plants. Inside is a free photographic, documentary and multimedia exhibition of the Riace Bronzes – 50 years of history. The 2 full size bronze Greek statues were discovered in 1972, underwater near Riace. These statues were cast in the 5th century BC and today reside in Reggio, Calabria. Here we get to see why this underwater discovery was one of 20th century’s most important archaeological finds

When walking along Corso Umberto, we have always stopped to admire the steps in front of the Palazzo because they are usually decorated with flowers and pots and other displays. When we visited in early June, they were mostly bare. Too bad.

Interesting free exhibition in a well-restored palazzo which included 17th c graffiti on outside walls. Used to be a night club and featured in a famous film.

Our B&B was just adjacent to this Palazzo.
It is situated on a very nice and quiet (yet not at night) Piazza where you can have a break and a drink or pastries on a hot summer afternoon.

We just discovered too late that we could get in this Palazzo and see pieces of art.
We missed it and it is regretful.

When you'll walk Corso Umberto from Porta Catania, it is just 100 meters on your right from Piazza Duomo.

I recommend you stop, climb the few stairs and try to enter.
It is well hidden and if as it is written in the other reviews the entrance is free, you have really not much to lose and everything to enjoy.
