Il convento della Martorana o del palinsesto

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript


[automatically translated] The publication of the long and compendious work of Gianni Cardamone on Martorana that calls monitored a complex of buildings that make up one of the finest "songs" of the city of Palermo: Here the layers of history coexist, overlap, intersect without elidersi, returning - for each step of the time - new and surprising configurations and asseverando one of the specific characters of the city of Palermo, to be a "palimpsest." What we see today is the result of the transformation produced by GBF Basile, in the second half of the nineteenth century, when the "reform" of Corso Vittorio Emanuele: variations in altitude and fittings, stands, containments have produced the present system that brings together Piazza Bellini, the convent and the Church of Martorana and the convent and the Church of Teatini around the triumphant crossing of Quattro Canti di Città. If only for this, to the Martorana convent it should be returned to its role within the city.
