Museum of Memory and Territory

recommended visit time
1 hour

MeTe is a captivating ethnographic museum and a lively cultural and art center, operating for over ten years in the oldest neighborhood of the Siculiana village, in the province of Agrigento. A Museum of Memory and Territory unique in its kind, as it not only serves as a genuine guardian of Sicilian memory but also as an engaging space featuring art exhibitions, conferences, concerts, performances, and, thanks to the nearby Trattoria Kamikos and Casa Vacanze, also a genuine hospitality. Inside the MeTe Museum, you can admire the artifacts of the Garibaldian doctor Giuseppe Basile, ancient photos, tools and utensils related to the wheat cycle, viticulture tradition, and other crafts of the local peasant and maritime civilization. Of particular interest is the vintage photo collection, the religious section, and the one related to the memory of the Fallen of the Great War. An exhibition space of Sicilian memory accompanied by a modern multimedia system that allows exploring various sections of the Museum through thematic photos and videos.

The idea of establishing the Museum arose in 2009 when some young people from Siculiana decided to found ALT – Leisure and Tourism Association with the mission of creating a space where individual and collective memories of the local community could be gathered in a physical place: an identity stronghold of historical, cultural, and tourist interest, but also an open space for reflection and social sharing. After years of intense work, focused on both the recovery of vintage objects and memorabilia and the urban regeneration of the ancient Casale neighborhood with outdoor art installations, MeTe was born in 2014: the Museum where memory walks hand in hand with imagination.
