The raised gallery

Among the architectural solutions realized during the renovation of the building, the most original one is without doubt the “pass-through” ramp, which develops as a “scenic corridor” from which to observe what is taking place below. The gallery, designed to be a multi-purpose exhibition space dedicated to temporary exhibitions, currently hosts samples of the historical and scientific collections of the University of Catania. The gallery represents a link between traditional science museums and new-generation museums.
