The latter forms the northern limit of the urban plan for Borgo Ulivia, largely ignored, elaborated by the architects Giuseppe Caronia, Luigi Epifanio, Vittorio Ziino and engineer Vincenzo Nicoletti. Within this large set, it stands the test core in Borgo Ulivia (1956-1962) designed and built by Giuseppe Samonà (parent company), Antonio Bonafede, Roberto Calandra and Edoardo Caracciolo. Across the city, the north end of Piana dei Colli, in conclusion dell'ipotizzato extension of Via della Libertà, provided by the PRG in 1962, it is located the ZEN neighborhood (North Zone Expansion), a few years renamed San Filippo Blacks. Inside of this settlement, as in Borgo Ulivia, they are distinguished morphologically different parts and in particular: Borgo Pallavicino, ZEN ZEN 1 and 2 which were made from the fifties until the mid-eighties of the twentieth century. The realization of ZEN 2 is the result of the national competition held dall'IACP of Palermo in 1970 won by Franco Amoroso Salvatore Needs, Vittorio Gregotti, Hiromichi Matsui and Franco Pure.
