Ex Stabilimento Florio delle Tonnare di Favignana e Formica

Florio delle Tonnare, the former Florio delle Tonnare Plant of Favignana & Formica, is an old tonnara (a traditional fisherman’s system for tuna) and one of the largest in all of the Mediterranean Sea. This is where Mr Ignazio Florenceo, who invented the revolutionary preservation method for tuna and built his famous plant, was born. This museum is a rare example of industrial architecture. It houses multimedial rooms that show interesting video about the customs and habits of the ancient tuna fisherman Mattanza. A dedicated area also houses some underwater archaeological finds from the archipelago that relate to the Battle of the Egadi.
