Historical Uniforms Collection, Acireale.
Acireale. The collection of uniforms located in the Town Hall takes its name from the scholar Aldo Scaccianoce, who gathered each piece. The relics shown have a double significance: historical and artistic. Every piece has its own historical story to tell, as they have all been worn during events that have shaped European history over the course of the XIX century, while the nineteenth century has been pregnant with highly artistic cultural moments since the Napoleonic period. These relics, in fact, also give testimony of fashion, taste, make and aesthetic quality that make them real masterpieces of craftsmanship.
Acireale is a small baroque town situated on a lava tableland very rich in a vegetation of citrus orchards on the slopes of Volcano Etna, falling sheer to the sea. Acireale has been destroyed many times from eruptions or earthquakes. The town, since Roman times, has been famous for its thermal waters.
