It has particularly rich cultural influences from many ancient civilizations: Trojan, Phoenician, Roman and Arabic. See here for futher information.The city offers many excellent venues for exhibiting visual art, and in recent years has seen a rekindling of interest in hosting international artistic and sporting events.
In early September 2006, a "Request for Participation" was sent to all artists exhibiting with Artprocess.com introducing the idea of a group show in this picturesque location. This is the list of 67 artists who replied expressing their interest in exhibiting at Art Process Trapani 2007, and working to make it a collective success - both personally and artistically.The artists have been asked to create at least one new work for the show, and to document it's proress on this site (see link work-in-progress).
