Among period buildings, cathedrals and churches, Modica offers its citizens and tourists a place of memory. The idea comes from the bond that exists between the Hyblaean city and an illustrious Italian poet. On 20 August 1901,
was born in Modica.
He was one of the most important poets and translators of Italian literature.
Quasimodo wrote works of enormous value that led him to win the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1959. Hence the idea to restore the house where the poet was born and turn it into a birthplace museum dedicated to him.
The Museo Casa Natale Salvatore Quasimodo (Salvatore Quasimodo Birthplace Museum) offers the chance to see the room where the Italian poet saw the first light of day, and much more!
In fact, there are also collections of many of the objects that belonged to Salvatore Quasimodo, including some photographs and the furniture from his Milan studio.
This is an opportunity to get to know Quasimodo and enter into contact with the reality of a bygone era that is increasingly distant from us.
