Abstract

[automatically translated] The modernity of the buildings in Sicily forming a striking crown garnishing the island on three sides. Modernity draws the perimeter of Sicily, by opening the borders to an internationalism and current breath. In architecture, between the mid-nineteenth century and the period between the two world wars of the last century, there is a significant flow of ideas, of manuals, constant comparisons and updates. A voltage that is involved in the overall raggelamento of ported the Modern Movement which intervenes between the '50s and' 60s. It closes a happy cycle, the modern elements glaze over, from one of the most essential elements of architecture: the noble rules of the project. To questions relating to the rules it can usefully be referred the dichotomy between gravity and lightness. The architecture, by its inescapable nature, weighs on the world in which it is founded, membership on the ground is a rule related to his being. The restoration of the Modern must include at once issues related to the survival of the individual works together with the reorganization of large parts of the contemporary city. We need the ability to respond appropriately in order to consume, technical and material, construction, together with a suitable maturity of cultic apparatus, political and entrepreneurial. You must also have a clear vision, operational, the different levels of interaction between the city, the territory and the economy through factive coordinations in which the architect is an important figure, but not the only one. The restoration of the Modern in particular, can not be different from the project, a project that evaluates the quality and the rules of any specific architecture, defining creatively new destinies and rehabilitation procedures can return them to the life of today. It is evident that these buildings have the ability, to get ready, even with modifications to read, to contemporary uses and a renewed presence who return their value to society, as a distinctive cultural and permanence of one's being. Gravity and lightness in the form of architecture, in architectural design. to contemporary uses and a renewed presence who return their value to society, as a distinctive cultural and permanence of one's being.
