VEDUTA DEL NUOVO ABITATO NELLA VALLE DEL BELICE

 
Today’s Poggioreale is not far away from the old centre which was destroyed in the earthquake of 1968. It is a modern town, conceived in a completely different way to the original, in which an architecture was realised which was a complete departure from the typology of the town which had been destroyed. Today Poggioreale is in a panoramic hill position, north of the river Belice which flows not far away. This new town is organised into three overlapping bastions, each formed by a residential nucleus in the shape of a ring around a circular town square. Green hills, a mountain, a knoll fit for a king: this is the natural scenery of Poggioreale which has kept itself alive in the context of its landscape which, through its cultivation of olives and vines, is the only element able to help it find that identity which the earthquake tried to cancel.
