The exhibition "At the origins of Sicily, the land and city of the Elymians - The Trojans of Sicily" was inaugurated on 14 June last in the medieval village of Erice and will be open to visitors throughout the summer until 3 November.

The cultural event, which has the famous art critic Vittorio Sgarbi as its exceptional curator, was born from an idea of ​​Giordano Bruno Guerri, Lorenzo Zichichi and Sgarbi himself and has the great peculiarity of enclosing another exhibition entitled "The victory of painting" to make an ideal comparison between the ancient peoples of Sicily and the great exponents of Italian painting such as Giorgio De Chirico and the master Luciano Ventrone.

During the exhibition, visitors will be able to learn about the ancient history of the Elimi, who were an ancient people, who escaped the Trojan War, and who settled in western Sicily, living from the 9th to the 1st century BC.

During the period in which they lived in our territory, they left many traces of their daily life such as the particular ceramics.

According to historical sources, the Elimi founded Erice itself and the nearby Segesta, one of the main cities of the Mediterranean basin, a place, that is, where the Elimi practiced their trade with foreign ships.

There are two locations for the exhibitions: for the exhibition "The Trojans of Sicily" the venue is located at the Wigner San Francesco institute and can be visited from 7 pm, while for the exhibition "The victory of painting", the spaces beyond those of The Wigner Institute are those of the “Antonino Cordici” museum complex.

The exhibition, which will be a fantastic opportunity for visitors to take a dip in the past between archeology and figurative art, between tourism and culture, is organized in collaboration between the Erice Arte Foundation of the municipality of Erice, the Ettore Maiorana Foundation and the Foundation Giorgio and Isa De Chirico.
