The Stanze al Genio Cultural Association was formed in March 2008 to promote the conservation and enjoyment of various objects belonging to private collections by organizing permanent exhibitions, events and related activities. The scope is to make the historical cultural assets acquired by several different collectors available to the public. The Cultural Association was founded by Pio Mellina, collector and officer of the court in Palermo; Antonio Perna, owner of the historic stationary shop; and Davide Sansone, professional restorer and responsible for the restoration of the Museum rooms. Successively, Claudio Iannelli, who is responsible for organizing events, guided visits and external activities, became an associate.
