MUSEO DEL GRANAIO AL BAGLIO DI STEFANO

 
Case Di Stefano
The Case di Stefano-Houses of Stefano, an ancient restored baglio (rural fortified structure), is today home to the prestigious Istituto di Alta Cultura Fondazione Orestiadi – Institute of High Culture Orestiadi Foundation. It holds, in the baronial house, the Museo delle Trame del Mediterraneo - Museum of Mediterranean Themes which has collections of costumes, jewellery, ceramics, textiles and objects of art of populations and cultures of the Mediterranean, to show the signs and themes which the coastal populations have in common. The exhibition system is unique in the world in that it keeps together works of contemporary art, and manufactured objects of material culture. The imposing structure of the barn holds a collection of contemporary art with important works donated by artists from all over the world who have frequented the laboratories/workshops. The foundation has the library Empedocle with more than 5000 volumes, also in foreign languages, and a Centro di Documentazione Orestiadi – Centre of Orestiadi Documentation (CDO) which collects catalogues and publications, promotes scientific and editorial activity, initiatives for the island’s craftwork and professional training courses.
