COUNT AGOSTINO PEPOLI // CONTE AGOSTINO PEPOLI



Count Agostino Pepoli was the founder of the Pepoli Museum in Trapani. The museum is situtated in the ex- Carmelite convent  next to the Sanctuary of  Our Lady of the Annunciation. This is the entrance to the sanctuary

This is the statue of the Madonna of Trapani, entirely in white marble. She is the protector of the fishermen.
