Dall'Isola delle Femmine alla marina di Partinico: fenomeni insediativi e costruzione del territorio.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The essay trace a brief profile of the settlement dynamics and the process of territorial structuring which occurred during the Modern Age, between the 16th and the 18th century, in that tract of coast ranging from Isola delle Femmine to the marina of Partinico, along the Western coast of Palermo.This area, that would have been transformed more deeply and quickly than before during the Contemporary Age, especially in the second half of the 20th century, in the past was certainly antropized – at least from the time of the Arab occupation of the island – but little or nothing urbanized and populated. For this reason, within three centuries, a number of urban settlements, new towns today cornerstones of the entire territory.
