The Permanent exhibition of La Gumina’s maps is located in Catania, inside the Ciminiere.
The collection has over one hundred topographic maps that the scholar and expert in the field had personally collected. These artefacts date back to different centuries, thus allowing a full understanding of the evolution of cartography and Ptolemaic maps up to the 19th century.
Some of those preserved are of particular interest:
The accessibility of these ancient documents represents a great opportunity to reunite past and present and, among other things, to do so completely free of charge.
Access to the exhibition is possible from Tuesday to Saturday, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
We have received your appointment and will send you a confirmation to your provided email upon approval.
