Il progetto del Museo del Mare a Palermo tra storia, ordine e regole dell’architettura

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article deals with the theme of contemporary re-construction of a part of an ancient building of great architectural significance: the Arsenal of Palermo. The part of the building facing the sea and of most architectural value has remained intact; instead, it was destroyed the part where they built the ships. In addition to basic themes, it will also discuss the issue of rules in architecture: the theme of restoration as architectural project; the theme of the architectural design in the ancient city and in the Mediterranean cities. The project is characterized by the order and quality of light, and has a special role in Palermo for the substantial rejection of the Plan to modern architecture in relation to the city and the buildings of history.
