Parco Lineare

This is a landscape project and it is about, in details, the acknowledgement of ancient agricultural, natural and historical landscapes in an area of Sicily in the threshold between Erei and Iblei, through the building of a new landscape. The project is part of a general hypothesis of re-use of the former narrow-gauge railroad that used to connect Caltagirone to Piazza Armerina and Dittaino, passing via the Michele di Ganzaria and Mirabella Imbaccari areas. It is about thinking of this equipped nature trail as a new design “light infrastructure”, spreading in a linear park developed over the railway solid, made up of a row of cypresses and the compact and variegated surfaces of the bushes planted along the inclined planes of relieves and trenches.
