Gibellina: between the Ises’s plan and the CrettoIn the background of the dialectic between innovative research and permanent aspects of architectural knowledge we can reflect on the relationship between architecture and territory through a number of theses. The occasion of the project was the reuse of the "Castelvetrano - San Carlo - Burgio" and "Santa Ninfa - Salemi - Calatifimi" railways provided by the association Adaciu. The reasoning is developed through seven projects between New Gibellina and the Sanctuary of Santa Maria delle Grazie, just beyond the Burri’s Cretto. Between these two poles are envisaged the landing of a continuous pedestrian path, which starts from the urban potential of Gibellina, origin and destination of trips (viale Indipendenza and the "Heart" of the City), and reveals the identity of the landscape investigated through careful changes of chosen places (Gibellina station, the viewpoint of Santa Ninfa and Santa Ninfa Campagna station, the former slums of Rampinzeri, the Cretto and the Sanctuary of Santa Maria delle Grazie). On individual projects prevails the general thesis, which demonstrates how it is possible, and necessary, make clear the territorial dimension of the Belice valley through a new relationship between the old and the present Gibellina.
