Scope and Content

This project series documents the Piazza Alicia in Salemi, Italy. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number [7]/80 2. The office assigned the date 1984 to this project.

The reconstruction of the mother church of Salemi, the construction of the Piazza Alica, 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 were chosen by the Curia of Mazara del Vallo to reconstruct 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, the Piazza Alicia. The goal was to create a harmonious connexion between the older and newer part of the city. The city authorities also wanted to link the Piazza Alicia to the piazza della Libertà. Both architects insisted on the importance of understanding the reconstruction of the Igreja Madre of Salemi as the same project as the Piazza Alicia.

Documenting this project are plans, project documentation, and correspondence.
