Valley of Belice

The Valley of Belice (Sicily, Italy) is an area located near Trapani, in the western part of Sicily. In 1968 a terrible earthquake totally destroyed most of its villages that were subsequently reconstructed from scratch near the old ones. In respect to its traditional surroundings the valley of Belice It’s a strange and alien place, full of modern art sculptures made during the reconstruction by important Italian artists such as Burri, Schifano, Consagra, Cascella e Pomodoro.

In 2010 I went there and made a photo-book about the earthquake and the consequences of reconstruction.
