How many of us have even for a moment had the curiosity through the words or more simply the images of knowing what Trapani was like in the past, which certainly was very different from what it looks like today, because many buildings are no longer there, the physiognomy of certain neighborhoods have changed or some of the most representative places or monuments that are still there today, as they were in the past.
All this is possible thanks to an exhibition that can be visited in these days until June 29 at the Diocesan Historical Archive on the occasion of the 174th anniversary of the foundation of the Diocese of Trapani.
They are memories of the past that will be revived through old photographs or postcards that are part of the collection of Dr. Tonino Perrera, an authoritative historian of our city, which makes its treasures available to citizens and tourists.
Since 2011 the Diocesan Historical Archive is open to the public to consult old documents on the government of the Bishops in the diocesan territory and their relations with the civil institutions and the population, the pastoral visits and the magisterium, to make scholars and historians known. the activity of the curia although in the course of its "young" existence, given that the diocese of Trapani was founded on 31 May 1844, but thanks to an intensive work of document reorganization it is possible to consult documents before the foundation thanks to the separation of some documents that was made by the diocese of Mazara del Vallo, to which Trapani belonged.
Since 2012, the Diocesan Historical Archive is part of a project of reorganization and inventory promoted by the Italian Episcopal Conference.
The exhibition can be visited until 29 June on the opening days of the diocesan archive, ie on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9.00 to 12.30.
