ZAC ai Cantieri Culturali alla Zisa is a large industrial archaeology area located in Palermo, Sicily. Its programming contemporary art season, promoted by the Department of Culture of the City of Palermo, soon brought to national and international attention the ZAC area as «a place of reference for contemporary art in the south of Europe and in the heart of the Mediterranean», in the words of the City Councillor for Culture Andrea Cusumano, «an exhibition centre that increasingly is strenghtening its powerful character thanks to the action generated by great Masters of contemporary  art».

A season of exhibitions inaugurated by the solo show of Mauro D’Agati curated by Gerhard Steidl, followed by the evocative anthological exhibition dedicated to Regina José Galindo, to continue with the great retrospectives of Hermann Nitsch, Letizia Battaglia and Mustafa Sabbagh.

Programming period that will be enriched with several other important contemporary art projects during next years, prior to the main event which will bring Palermo to the fore as one of the contemporary art capitals in 2018, thanks to the famous international art biennial Manifesta 12.
