INTERNATIONAL CARLO SCARPA PRIZE 2015

The 26th edition of International Carlo Scarpa Prize is dedicated to Maredolce-La Favara, which lies at the heart of the Brancaccio district of Palermo in the area that has come to be known as the “Conca d’Oro”. Maredolce-La Favara is today a vast depression in the ground, what in the past was a huge reservoir, with a still recognisable, irregularly shaped island at its centre and a magnificent palace standing on the edge of this concavity with ranks of recently-built houses close by on two sides. Within the hollow, an area covering about twenty-five hectares contains a complex system of structures, hydraulic devices and an enormous citrus orchard, as well as the Norman palace.
