The charm that the coral has always exercised on the human imagination has its origin essentially from its metamorphic nature.
This mysterious genesis has been the source of a vast production of myths and beliefs all aimed at arguing that coral could disperse evil and misfortune and acquire luck and well-being.
In the classical West, for example, the vision of coral was translated into the blood of Jellyfish which renews its perennial metamorphosis with Ovid: "tender and floating in the water, which hardens in the air and becomes stone".
The Sicilian court was the main spot for collections of extraordinary objects, Frederick II was the first to show interest: these collections represented the wealth and power of the prince himself.
The strategic location of the island made Sicily a territory dedicated to the trading of luxury products such as precious fabrics, wine, oil, gems and coral.
