The exhibition is divided into eight rooms retracing the sacred history from the pre-earthquake period up to the establishment of the diocese of Ragusa in 1950, but also focusing attention on the ancient cult of the patron saint St. John.
A section is reserved for the exhibition Sicily Antiqua , characterized by ancient prints and engravings of inestimable value, datable between 1500 and 1800 and owned by the Cesare and Doris Zipelli Foundation.
