Abstract

[automatically translated] The satisfaction of special needs often results in environmental degradation, with all its consequences. In the specific case, the need to be able to enjoy the coast of Sicily, considered tourist heritage and a source of wealth for the island territory, led in the past to speculative policies of strong environmental impact that have disfigured the beaches and coasts in the winter months. This manifests itself today with all its incisiveness, defining sad and worrying scenarios for the future of our natural heritage. The current situation of the Sicilian coast is a clear example of how little has yet been determined: profound alterations of the coastal landscape, with upheavals of the morphology of the place, damage of the Mediterranean, environmental pollution. All along the coastal strip highlights the indiscriminate use of reinforced concrete, used in the frantic building activity once the intensive exploitation of the coasts, most often privatized, with the construction of holiday homes, tourist facilities and beach clubs around which gravitate often supporting structures, some of which, though luck with seasonality, over time they have acquired a fixed connotation, helping to meet the increasingly pressing needs redevelopment. The contribution, through the support of an historical survey of the situation of the Sicilian coastal areas and the analysis of the state of the same, seeks to highlight, if ever proof were needed, how and how much the man, hidden behind the mask of the needs arising from economic development, it has compromised perhaps forever one of the most valuable assets that have been donated. All this in order to operate in the future, choices and propose alternative solutions including through the implementation of those criteria related to the concept of temporary architecture by incorporating the local environmental resources, tends to promote the area without causing irreversible transformations landscapes. lightweight structures, easily removable, transportable and are convertible, built with local materials, while respecting the environment and ecosystems. choices and propose alternative solutions including through the implementation of those criteria related to the concept of temporary architecture by incorporating the local environmental resources, tends to promote the area without causing irreversible transformations landscapes. lightweight structures, easily removable, transportable and are convertible, built with local materials, while respecting the environment and ecosystems. choices and propose alternative solutions including through the implementation of those criteria related to the concept of temporary architecture by incorporating the local environmental resources, tends to promote the area without causing irreversible transformations landscapes. lightweight structures, easily removable, transportable and are convertible, built with local materials, while respecting the environment and ecosystems.
