Palazzo Lanza Tomasi
Butera 28 Apartments, that provide charming tourist accommodation in Palermo, Sicily, are situated in the grounds of the 18th century Palazzo Lanza Tomasi.
In 1849, the Palazzo was bought by Prince Giulio Fabrizio Tomasi di Lampedusa. Giulio Fabrizio, an amateur astronomer, would be the model for the main character in The Leopard, the novel written by his great-grandson Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa.
The Palazzo was the writer’s last home until his death in 1957 and now hosts his house museum.
Palazzo Lanza Tomasi is a listed building and his owners are members of ADSI, Associazione Dimore Storiche Italiane (Association of Italian Historic Houses).
