Architettura e costruzione delle “gallerie a pozzi” nella piana di Palermo

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] If the protection of the Cultural and Environmental Heritage "visible" is often encouraged and promoted by public opinion that perceives immediately in the degradation of monuments, works of art or landscaping the risk of irretrievable loss, the preservation of everything which is hidden from view is often more difficult to implement: the case of the vast "Heritage Cable" hidden in the Palermo underground. In this panorama exception represents "Course Jesuit High" in Palermo, a complex architecture of underground passages for the catchment and adduction of water, one of the few still active systems, not mutilated by the blind excavations and irresponsible that in some cases have accompanied the building development in the '70s.
