    Abstract

    The rebuilding of the second world war half-destroyed cities wasan occasion to try languages and modern techniques that wasexceeded by the monumentality of the fascism just after a fewgood realizations.In Palermo, the rebuilding started, also with some architecturecompetition, a few projects that brought to fine examples ofmodern architecture.The Istituto Nautico is a very singular case; he was built in whatwas the ex San Bartolomeo Hospital, whose only the eighteenthcentury valuable arcade was salvaged.The winning project was remarkable for the inclusion of organicpoetry elements in the rationalist architecture and as one of thefirst example of the inclusion of a new architecture in an oldmonumental building.About 50 years since his realization, made with great changes inregard to the original project, is very important the questionabout how to work on a modern building to save it and torespect the original idea and at the same time respect thecurrent urbanistic and restauration laws.
