  • Beautiful land artwork in the middle of Sicily
  • Remarkable site.
  • Far be it from me to evaluate the work of Burri, I don't have the skills. Place to be seen, to be lived. Of strong visual and emotional impact. The road is rough and hard to find. A suggested by google maps is impractical, since a cave-in. We appeal to the help of a friendly trucker. Even signs, information boards, not even a table with the name of the work and the artist. ABSOLUTE NOTHINGNESS, that probably strengthens involuntarily the impact of the work. From Sicily, I always have that feeling of "might be gorgeous, shame. Don't we deserve nothing. "

  • Leaving aside the artistic value and disquisioni related to using a similar amount of cement, the place is definitely impressive and definitely leaves a unique feeling to those who pass through its locks.

  • Abandoned. You may park among the brushwood or along the way. No disclosures, even the most mundane. But the emotional impact is overwhelming. This poured concrete that covers the whole city like a shroud, draws a lunar landscape. A vibrant monument of death.
