Falconarossa, located on the foot of the hills surrounding Palermo, north-west of the ancient core, was for Giuseppe Samonà an extraordinary experience to reflect on architecture’s modern language. Through five “special” villas, the only that were built of those provided by a series of development plans never carried out, Samonà creates original compositions where some of the most significant architectural experiences of the XX century mingle together in a new form. It is also interesting and instructive the comparison between the projects that come before and after the special villas and, above all, between the latter and the project for the Offices of the House of Representatives, as it generates a common reflection between architecture and town planning.
