Mozia Museum in Sicily, Italy by Arnaboldi & Partners

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

Article source: Arnaboldi & Partners

Since the end of the 18th century, when the Greek colonization of Sicily forced the Phoenicians to retreat to Motya, Soluntum, and Palermo, the ancient Phoenician city of Motya lies on the San Pantaleo Island, in the lagoon of Marsala in Sicily.

In 397 B.C., Dionysus of Syracuse knocked Motya down after a long siege and the survivors found a shelter on the mainland, establishing the Punic city of Lilibeo. This settlement, today known as the city of Marsala, quickly gained in importance and overshadowed the ancient city of Motya, which the Carthaginians will conquer back soon after. The archeological excavations in Motya brought back an astonishing male sculpture, considered an original Greek artwork of the 5th century B.C., and the urban design of the settlement, of the city walls, and of numerous buildings. Above all, the most significant archeological discovery is the unveiling of a unique Phoenix-Punic warship, sunk at a battle during the First Punic War between the Romans and the Carthaginians in 241 B.C.

Villa Carlotta hotel in Sicily, Italy by Architrend Architecture

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Article source: Architrend Architecture

The architectural project articulates the space in response to various demands: relating with the urban context, dialoguing with the various bodies of the building, acting as a filter between indoors and outdoors, responding to the need for living comfort, etc. The direction of the space relates man with the building with the aim of generating places that improve the quality of life. A banal assumption for all designers, but it is precisely for its complex simplicity that there are few examples in which this theoretic base has become an excellent project, without falling into the banal or the paternalist.

Villa GM in Marina di Ragusa, Sicily by Architrend Architecture

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

Article source: Architrend Architecture

This villa, like a garden pavilion hung with a spectacular view of the sea, is part of a complex of houses located in Marina di Ragusa, the seafaring village of Ragusa, on a plot of land with beautiful views overlooking the Mediterranean and a stretch of coast in the direction of the island of Malta, distant about sixty miles off, and that in a bright day you can see clearly.  The design of the villa derives from the influence exercised by the program of the Case Study Houses (CSH) implemented in the 50’s by John Entenza and the magazine he founded “Art & Architecture”.
