An interesting exhibition dedicated to Wolfang Huber, an eminent German silversmith, who left his Bavaria at a very young age to wander far and wide across Europe, until he arrived in Trapani in 1764, can be visited until 7 April at the Pepoli Regional Museum. where he married twice. His bond with Trapani was not only amorous but also artistic, because during his stay he produced valuable silver artefacts which are today on display in the Museum.

The exhibition is also accompanied by a series of conferences entitled "Inside the exhibition: rococo gleanings", which will start on February 28th.

The free admission meetings will take place with the following programme:

Wednesday 28 February, 5.00 pm – Lina Novara, Wolfgang Hόber. A German silversmith in Trapani (1764-1782)
• Wednesday 13 March, 5.00 pm - Gaetano Stellino, "Here is the key to everything" - The interest in Sicily of European intellectuals in the second half of the eighteenth century
• Wednesday 20 March, 5.00 pm – Daniela Scandariato, Rococo-style carved furniture in the Trapani area
• Wednesday 27 March, 5.00 pm – Maurizio Vitella, Rococo suggestions in Sicily between painting and decorative arts
• Wednesday 3 April, 5.00 pm – Piero Messana, Rococo exuberances and oddities: mirrors in decorations.

Returning to the actual exhibition event, the exhibition offers the visiting public 44 silver works from the second half of the 18th century, largely never seen before and represent a precious testimony of his artistic personality, an expression of German Rococo, giving the his works a very personal Germanic imprint on a style already established in Sicily. On display there will also be other works created by silversmiths from Trapani or Palermo with whom the artist interacted during his stay in Trapani.

The works will be placed in a large room on the first floor and a guided tour will be possible after booking at museo.pepoli@regione.sicilia.it every Wednesday afternoon.
