The Paolo Orsi Regional Archaeological Museum of Syracuse is one of the most important archaeological museums on the European continent and one of the oldest in Italy. It was inaugurated in 1886 in the historic cathedral square and was directed by Paolo Orsi from 1895 to 1934. Due to the increasing number of finds the gallery needed an extension in the garden of the Villa Landolina, the design was made by Franco Minissi and the new space was inaugurated in January 1988.
