Sicily monuments to remain open Epiphany weekend (updates previous) (ANSA) - Palermo, January 3 - Museums and archaeological sites on the southern island of Sicily will remain open during the upcoming three-day Epiphany weekend, Sicily Governor Rosario Crocetta said Friday after a snap meeting with local culture officials. The region had earlier announced that the sites would be closed to visitors on Sundays at least until the end of March due to a funding shortfall. Crocetta said officials would meet next week to discuss ways of keeping sites open while still paying museum staff according to union rules.
