"The Museum of Casa Professa"
The historical and artistic heritage of the Museum of Casa Professa is made up of paintings, sculptures and decorative art from the Church of Jesus and the House attached, from various Sicilian colleges of the Company, but also from private donations. Through these important works of art it is possible to recreate the very history of the Order, its complex culture steeped in profound symbolic references, but also the very history of Palermo and its religious identity.
