The exhibition, promoted by the Fondazione Federico II and the Assessorato regionale ai Beni Culturali e all’Identità Siciliana (regional council for the Cultural Heritage and the Sicilian Identity), offers a meaningful selection of important Flemish paintings from public and private Sicilian collections. The prestigious heritage gathered here can be framed in a vast chronologic arch, ranging from the late XV century to the XVII century. The route of the exhibition is articulated according to  two strongly intertwined themes: on one hand, the artwork arrived in Sicily through several paths of artistic patronage and collecting; on the other, artists of Flemish and Dutch origins who had been active and completely integrated in the Sicilian historical and social fabric since the central years of the XVI century.
