The coral Trapani is the protagonist of an exhibition which these days is having its headquarters at the Palazzo Valle di Catania.

The event, titled "The Great Masters Coral - Corals of Trapani the seventeenth and eighteenth century" promises to trace two centuries of Sicilian history told through the coral, its processing, the key figures in the history and art of that wonderful time.

Thanks to a collaboration with the Association of Goldsmiths Jewellers Trapani, Federpreziosi-Confcommercio and the Art College of Design in Trapani, you can also visit a laboratory in which you can learn how to begin the processing of this material.

The processing of coral, in Trapani, has ancient roots.
The art dates back to the fifteenth when he began fishing for coral, which is an animal, by fishermen Trapani who profited in the sale of that equipment used by local craftsmen to create jewelry, but also objects of coumne.

Soon, crafts corallaio drills emerged and characterized in real art diventanto famous and sought after throughout the Mediterranean.

This led to a considerable loss induced with requests and orders, also important, both in Africa and in Europe.

Recent legislative restrictions have effectively reduced the harvesting and processing of the coral thus making it even more precious and rare objects from the past.

The show, currently in Catania, will be moved to the Museum of Pepoli Trapani June 18 to 30.
