MuseoMuseum of Giovanni Verga's House
Riguardo il museo
Verga was the most important exponent of “Verism”. We can surely consider him a precious figure within European literature. His works bring to our mind those of Zolà, Tolstoj, Dickens and Mark Twain. When visiting his house, you not only get to know Verga better, but in addition you are able to explore Sicilian society of the 19th century and the beginning of the last one.
The following guide was realized within the project “Alternanza Scuola-Lavoro” and the subject was : “Verga’s House as a resource to exploit its cultural heritage”.
The work was carried out by class 4D of Liceo Classico “Spedalieri” of Catania and the Regional Pole for the Cultural Sites of Catania.
General project: dr. Fabrizio Nicoletti, prof. Claudia Motta.
Internal tutor: prof. Angela Maria Messina.
External tutors: arch. Giovanni Laudani, arch. Santa Sorbello, sig.ra Maria Consoli.
The audio-guide is part of the project “Sicilia Beni Culturali per izi. Travel” coordinated by Elisa Bonacini from the University of Catania.
English translation of the guide: prof. Angela Sorbello.
Reader’s voice: arch. Santa Sorbello.
