The charm that the coral has always exerted on the human imagination, it essentially originates from its metamorphic nature.
This mysterious genesis was the source of a vast production of myths and beliefs all directed to argue that coral could dispel evil and misfortune and acquire good fortune and well-being.
In the classical West, for example, the vision of coral was translated into the blood of Medusa which renews its perennial metamorphosis with Ovidio: "tender and floating in the water, which hardens and becomes stone in the air".
There Sicilian court was the favorite focus of the collections of extraordinary objects, Frederick II he was the first to express 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 mercantile practice of luxury products such as precious fabrics, wine, oil, gems and coral.
