Scope and Content

This project series documents the Reconstrução da Igreja Madre de Salemi, the Piazza Alicia and the Recuperação do Plano Cascio in Salemi, Italy. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number [7]/80. The office assigned the dates 1983-1999 for this project.

The reconstruction of the mother Church of Salemi, the construction of the Piazza Alicia, and the rehabilitation of Plano Cascio was part of an urban renewal for Salemi. In 1968, an earthquake destroyed the Igreja Madre de Salemi and damaged the area. The church was never rebuilt. In 1982, Roberto Collovà and Siza we're chosen by the Curia of Mazara del Vallo for the reconstruction of the church. Instead of rebuilding it, the architects decided to use the ruins to create something new that would represent the spirit of the church and the memory of the earthquake.

Documenting this project are plans, project documentation, and correspondence. Photographic materials document construction work and the model.
