Francesco Durante's collection

On the first floor of the Palazzo della Cultura in Letojanni (Messina) (Piazza Matteotti) visitors can see a beautiful collection of books and surgical instruments belonged to Francesco Durante.

The building previously hosted a little clinic - promoted by Durante himself - and the Opera nazionale maternità e infanzia (national opera for motherhood and childhood).
