indoor
The works to erect this sumptuous palace continued a little slow, in fact they lasted 11 years, partly due to the raising works of the opposite Palazzo Torres, which turned out to be more demanding than expected, and partly due to the precarious conditions of Health of the Engineer Dumontier, who fell ill. It is at this time of difficulty that the collaboration with the architect Luciano Alì was strengthened, to whom the bishop entrusted the work and the task of completing his private chapel and Palazzo San Zosimo, which will be completed after 1772.
HISTORY
Palazzo San Zosimo was built in 1762 to house the clerics of the Diocese of Syracuse, but unlike all the other works concerning the Cathedral and the bishop’s palace, the construction of this building was financed entirely by the archbishop. Scholars have attributed the project to the military engineer Luigi Alessandro Dumontier, who at that time represents the bishop’s reference technician, although, in fact, none of the documents found explicitly refers to the name of the Engineer. Another interesting element, which can be seen from these documents, is the indication of the place where the white stone was extracted for the construction, it is the fief of Baron Tornabene, south-east of Syracuse.
IN MODERNITY
In recent years, the Palace has hosted temporary exhibitions and sacred art exhibitions, including the exhibition dedicated to the Treasure of the Cathedral, which includes sacred furnishings, liturgical vestments and silvers from the 16th to the 19th century, the traveling exhibition ” They saw and believed, the beauty and joy of being Christians “, which touched on several Italian cities on the occasion of the Year of the Faith.
