On display are masterpieces of Trapani, a true art, unique in the centuries that divided the production of the territory.

This is an exhibition that highlights the work of a typical expression of artistic Trapani who until recently was being infringed (and erroneously) called papier-mâché. In reality they are different materials of sculptures made of wood, canvas, glue, straw, cork, iron, etc. ....

"For the exhibition is a selection process diachronic works to better identify the artists and workshops to illustrate the value of manufactured goods, according to their chronological evolution of their use in ritual and in appearing to represent the Church - said the director of the Diocesan Museum Precopi Anna Maria Lombardo - Trapani sculptors carved wooden heads, feet and hands that were assembled on a wooden structure on which they were modeled after materials such as straw or cork, everything was covered with linen or other fabric creating interesting patterns that were painted and fixed with special glue. The most famous expression of this technical and operational value is evidenced by the procession of the Mysteries of Trapani and Erice ".

This technique, known as' wood canvas and glue, "Trapani unites almost all the artists of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Giovanni Matera, the Ciotti, Giuseppe Milanta, James Tartaglia, the Nolfi, Baldassare Pisciotta, Vito Lombardo are some of the talented sculptors working between the '600 and '700, in the late nineteenth and first half of the twentieth century continued on their wake Pietro Croce, Antonio Giuffrida, Giuseppe Cafiero, Dominic Li Muli.

The technique used to create sculptures of different materials Trapani was to carve wood carefully in their faces, hands, feet and body parts visible and to assemble, snap on a specially made wooden structure which was also granted the cork and / or straw to outline the anatomical shape of the body and create the volume of the statue.
The assembly of spare parts enabled the sculptor the opportunity to create works to soar into space with color were disguised the joints and the wire and the basic structures of wood and cork, and were coated with the patterned cloth and glue, drapery rhythms conquered nature which contributed to the spectacular overall effect.

The sacred mysteries of the groups of Trapani and Erice are the works that best highlight not only their extraordinary expressive power, but also uses the processional, which made them extremely useful lightweight composition of different materials.
