Again this year will be the historic re-enactment of the arrival and death in Trapani of Manfredi d´Aragona with Father Federico III, king of Sicily, and Eleonora d´Angiò.
From the 9th to the 12th of November 2017 with the sixth edition of this historic event, the 700th anniversary of this arrival in the city will be particularly remembered by the royal family, who unfortunately lived on the 9th of November 1317 the premature disappearance of the little Aragonese prince Manfredi, who found burial in the church of S. Domenico.
Manfedus was born in Catania in 1306 and despite his young age he was already invested in the title of Duke of Athens even if he never set foot in this territory, because death caught him because of a fall, while he was in Trapani . He was only 11 years old and was a terrible event for his parents, which he irretrievably shook them all his life.
The body of the young prince, as already mentioned, is inhumed in the Church of San Domenico, where his remains are located in a wooden ornate decorated near the altar.
The historical recollection is handled in the details of the Cultural Association "Trapani: tradumari & venti" in collaboration with the Rettoria San Domenico, with the free patronage of the Municipality of Trapani and with the contribution of the Sicilian Region - Regional Tourism Department - Department of Tourism, Sport and Entertainment .
