Abstract

[automatically translated] The book collects and recreates the essays by the author to the "story" of the city of Palermo, written during the period when he served as professor of Architectural Design at the Faculty of Architecture. In the writings of Torricelli of Palermo, the result of studies and project experiences involving specific locations of the historical center, embodies that particular cognitive and interpretive mode, starting from the details, the seemingly marginal data, from the attention to the telltale clues, makes to be unique in terms of architecture and the city. "Palermo - writes Torricelli - does not lend itself to be understood linearly; on the contrary it can only be interpreted with great intellectual curiosity, through the assiduous exercise in defining and examining clues as its anomalies.
