NOTES: Palazzo Abatellis was built in Catalonian Gothic style between 1490 and 1526 by Matteo Carnelivari. It was a Dominican priory from 1523 until 1943 when the arcade, the portico, the south-west wing, and the western tower were destroyed by a bomb. Carlo Scarpa recuperated the structure to house the Sicilian Regional Gallery in 1953-1954.
