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 map of the Oikoumen√®, i.e. the inhabited world, drawn up even by Ptolemy (2nd century)
  • the Nova Siciliae, Sardiniae, Corsicae map (16th century)
  • the Imago Siciliae collection, a book with authors La Gumina and Dufour.

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.
