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.
NOTES: This London double-decker bus was one of several that set off on a publicity tour of Europe during the Festival of Britain. The bus interiors, designed by Arthur Braven, illustrated with minature displays, the British scene, and the principal Festival Exhibitions and the Arts festivals for 1951.
