Among the sites managed by the Archaeological Park of Naxos Taormina, the Museum and the Archaeological Area of Naxos and the M.A.Fra, the Archaeological Museum of Francavilla di Sicilia, the last jewel realized by the Park together with the Municipality, inaugurated in mid-October and closed like all the other sites at the beginning of November in compliance with the security measures issued by the Mibact to limit the effects of the new wave of covid epidemic, are now accessible to visitors. In these days the English version of the video has been installed in the immersive room.
“Until the end of February – explains Gabriella Tigano, director of Naxos Taormina Park – we are forced to keep closed the Ancient Theatre because of essential maintenance works. Finally, the work on Isola Bella is about to start, where in the next few days the site of the extraordinary maintenance work will be set up, which, in addition to restoring offices and ticket office, will allow the recovery of some environments currently forbidden to visitors for safety reasons. We count on reopening the site in a definitive way in a few months, and in any case before the summer season, returning to the ever-increasing number of visitors new spaces of this fascinating period residence, so camouflaged in the landscape and flora of the island to be one with the surrounding environment”.
“In recent months – says the assessore dei Beni culturali e dell’identità siciliana Alberto Samonà – we have suffered and we still suffer for the inability to share together beauty and art in the places deputies: museums, theaters, cinemas. For this reason the reopening of the art sites is an important first step, a beneficial message of hope, of cultural, social and economic awakening for our communities”.
