The museum is located on the
outskirts of the town in the ancient Borgo Annunziata
The museum is housed in a 14th c. Carmelite Convent which was
considerably redesigned between the 16th and 18th centuries,
not far from the celebrated Sanctuary of Santissima
Annunziata, where the marble statue of the "Madonna of
Trapani", attributed to Nino Pisano, is kept and venerated.
The museum illustrates with its collections of paintings and
sculptures the development of the decorative art in the
territory of Trapani and in particular that of applied art,
which was very important in the field of coral objects,
majolica, gold, silver, and cribs.
The collections. The museum originated from the private
collection of Count Agostino Pepoli, a strong promoter of
the institution at the beginning of the 20th century. Other
significant additions have come from deconsecrated convents
in Trapani and from the Fardelliana Art Gallery, a rich
collection of works of the Neapolitan school donated by
General G. B. Fardella to the town of his birth.
The original foundation was later enlarged by bequests,
loans and donations of numerous collections of antiquarian
interest and of decorative art: noteworthy are the donations
of Count Hernandez di Erice and of the Sieri Pepoli Hospice.
The museum displays paintings and sculptures and dedicates
particular attention to the decorative and applied arts.
