Publisher's Description

Part of Olivo Barbieri’s larger project “site specific_”, which offers a new way to comprehend the language of cities, stimulating reflection on how urban space can be rethought, redesigned, and rebuilt in an incessant cycle of death and rebirth, Italian Quakesintroduces the element of natural disasters to the analysis. Launching from Gibellina, a small city in central Sicily that was destroyed by the 1968 Belice earthquake, the book explores the landscape as an autonomous object that experiences traumas. Urban shocks and rifts can appear similar, even if the causes are human actions – economic crisis, war, illegal construction, etc. – leaving lasting wounds on the living body of cities.
