The artwork in the Sicilian culture

By the Governance of Sicilian Artisan Foundation

The processing of red coral from Trapani is an art that dates back to the eleventh century, when the Arabs ruled in Sicily. Since then, skilled Sicilian coral masters have created real masterpieces, such as nativity scenes, necklaces, bracelets, liturgical objects … in which the coral is often coupled with copper, gold, lava stone. Princes, cardinals, popes and wealthy aristocrats were among the great clients. If you come to Trapani you cannot  miss a visit to the Pepoli museum which preserves beautiful creations in red coral from Trapani.
