Gibellina

Town Hall

In 1968 the earthquake of the Belice Valley destroyed Gibellina. The town was completely rebuilt a few kilometres away, giving life to the largest open air Museum in the world. Numerous artists contributed, in fact, to the reconstruction, dotting the landscape with bold sculptures and architecture which can be admired whist walking through the streets. The ruins from the earthquake were also transformed into a work of art by Alberto Burri who, covering them with a cement cast, made an enormous Cretto. In the Civic Museum of Contemporary Art, the works of the main artists who worked in Gibellina during the reconstruction phase can be admired: Accardi, Consagra, Rotella, Guttuso, Schifano and Sanfilippo, to name but a few. During the summer period, the Orestiadi collection continues the avant-garde vocation of the town, with a theatre, poetry, visual arts and music review.
