(50 items available)
The reader is guided to descend the stairway that leads to the catacombs and, beyond the iron gate, here come the mummies. An extremely ancient tradition across Europe, mummification was especially popular in Sicily, and the Palermo Catacombs still remain the most extraordinary expression of this tradition. Page after page, the book is an historical and artistic guide to the largest collection of spontaneous and artificual mummies in the world. Edited by Ivan Cenzi, this book about the Palermo Catacombs is the first in the Bizzarro Bazar series. Title appears in Italian on the cover but the book is fully bilingual in English.
