L’altra città. Architetture per il divertimento in Sicilia

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review

Abstract

[automatically translated] If in the south geographical and climatic conditions seem ideal for developing tourist centers for bathing, the mild climate and the ease of access to the sea are on the contrary, along with lesser economic development, the main reasons for the delay on the northern countries, where the construction of the place suitable for bathing and its accessory spaces represented a necessity. The architecture which develops in the settlements of southern Italy is therefore almost naturally architecture of the superfluous. The dualism between labor town and city of the fun creates unusual combinations and architectural references.
