This essay concerns the activity of a woman who can be considered one of the first protagonists and probably, paraphrasing Nikolaus Pevsner, one of the first pioneers of the Modern Movement in Palermo, a complex cultural context. The difficult role of women in Italian architecture of the 1960s and 1970s, coming from the legacies of the fascist regime, was particularly evident in Sicily where professional activity was practiced only by men. Among the very few operating and militant women, it is certainly to remember Luciana Natoli whose works and all the writings define, in that period, an identity character to the Sicilian territory. To fully understand the figure of this woman able to look architecture through different scales of analysis, one must start from her academic activity made up multiple studies and interesting reflections very current on architecture and cities, then cross the urban activity up to the planning activity. This study investigates the thought of Luciana Natoli and returns, also through the discipline of “Drawing”, the knowledge of her unrealized projects, a clear testimony of a coherent path.
