In 1036, the sons of Tancrède de Hauteville (a local overlord) left to conquer Southern Italy. The rich and powerful kingdom they founded in Sicily blossomed into one of the most outstanding and beautiful civilisations of the Middle Ages. The exhibition traces this epic tale of the Norman kings of Italy and their influence on the Royal Houses of Europe.
The reconstitution of a medieval garden plunges the visitor into the life of the Norman Conquests.
