Un nuovo assetto per il quartiere della Kalsa nel Cinquecento: l'addizione urbana del piano di porta dei Greci

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] The essay brings to light, through significant acquisitions documentary, the only urban addition operation that the city of Palermo, still walled, has ever known: the one that saw the expansion of the Kalsa district towards the sea and the redesign of its walls, implemented the project of Royal Pedro Prado, but with the direct involvement of their promoter, the viceroy Juan de Vega. The research also focuses on aspects of the construction site of the new fortifications 'modern', as well as of those related to artistic and stylistic building of a new city gate, loaded with strong symbolic values, and the roots of the classical language in the sixteenth century Sicily.
