Abstract

[automatically translated] The rich architectural heritage of Partanna, one of the most significant urban reality of the Belice Valley, in addition to the damage caused by the earthquake of 1968, has undergone several systematic demolition, work for sloth or speculative purposes. Situated between the valleys of Modione and Belice, the modern city has developed as a Baroque addition to the medieval core, within a quadrilateral with the four summits convent buildings (San Francesco, the new Carmine, San Nicholas and the Badia), upstream fate the ancient castle of Grifeo, the noble family to which the story of Partanna is inextricably linked.
