  • You may like it or not like it, but undoubtedly has its own charm this project by Alberto Burri who invented a work that, through direct intervention in the territory, perpetuates the memory of Gibellina, destroyed by an earthquake in 1968. The artist has covered the debris in the country with a poured concrete white by large fissures, a reproduction of downtown streets destroyed. The work, the surface of 8000 square meters, was built in several stages, whose last of 2015, as can be seen from the gleaming white surface again. As previous unfortunately is in a State of considerable disrepair with weeds growing everywhere, causing damage to the structure into several parts, which lost its original whiteness and looks rather deteriorated. But the visit on a rainy day and with the absolute silence around was something indescribable!

  • A place lost in the hills, to visit without a rush to hear the silence that reigns supreme. The site does not have the charm of the abandoned village, is another thing. Burri coated concrete houses, leaving a maze of narrow streets that intersect. The sky, though cloudy, dominates the landscape and makes suggestive and disturbing.

  • Taking advantage of the day off I decided to explore this work of land art!! Following some advice read around on the internet I leave in salemi and I follow the road to santa ninfa and continue until you reach just a stone's throw from the opera. The General view from afar and to walk through the paths taken within this structure

  • 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. "

  • 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.

  • One of the most exciting works of Land art in existence. The street and the landscape to get you fully immersed in the atmosphere of the place. The only drawback, it should be cleaned up and painted the original part of the cretto
