Until the first week of August, Palermo's Salinas Archaeological Museum is hosting an exceptional display of ancient Greek silver discovered at the Morgantina site near Enna in east-central Sicily.
Interesting as this is, the tale of its discovery - and how the Italian government retrieved it from the Metropolitan museum in New York, which had purchased it from art traffickers in the 1980s - is just as remarkable. Some of these objects are truly unique.
The exhibit is well worth a visit if you're in Palermo any time soon. read about this treasure in Antonella' Gallo's article (Morgantina Silver) in the July issue of our online Magazine.
