Una città alla ricerca dei propri spazi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

[automatically translated] Palermo, a city full of contradictions and ambiguities, full of mysteries and meanings, torn between modernity and tradition, forever in search of their spaces. Piecemeal and without quality, unrelated or inconsistent with the wealth of the historical values of the ancient city and to the specificities of the coastal landscape, but only guided by an idea of recovery understood as a return to the past. All projects for the water-front are strangers to the city; The buildings are designed in the port more to be put on display to the sea and not to integrate with the city. Both in urban planning and in implementing projects of programs, the architecture needs to know to grasp the ability to interpret the physical transformation of the territory, through its response to the needs of society,
