Frantumazione e armonia:dinamiche della "diluizione" urbana nella Piana dei Colli di Palermo

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] The plain of Palermo Hills is an area hatched by many historical and cultural values that over time have woven expressive relationship with nature, reflecting different forms of physical and social organization, now degraded and drowned in rampant sprawl. Residues of gardens, marked by the utility and dedicated to beauty, are diluted in an urban dimension grinding ecological and social balances. Plans and programs, in obvious conflict of public interests, pursuing adverse principles, draw differing regeneration strategies, showing the need for creative and harmonious interactions with the inhabitants in order to re-establish ethical connections with nature and return to the planning process the political dimension of Socratic social learning.
