Edoardo Gellner

Edoardo Gellner in Sicilia

  • Chiara Baglione


In 1973, when recalling the experience of designing the ENI residential village in Gela, Edoardo Gellner wrote: “One could not forget that it was acting within a land of deeply rooted, ancient urban traditions. A land where cities and the countryside are always formally separate, where the clusters in which community life takes place are a substantially built mass, almost an island of radical humanisation in the rural landscape [...]. And there we present certain ways of configuring the urban landscape of Sicilian cities: the articulation of altimetry; the junctions utilizing steps; the strictness in alignment; a sort of ‘rigidity’ in the composition of volumes.”
