:AFTER Architecture Festival in Sicily

22—29 April 2023,

:AFTER Festival diffuso di architettura in Sicilia is the first festival of architecture in Sicily that proposes a multidisciplinary analysis of the architectural structures that has characterised the last 100 years (1922-2022) on the island.

AFTER HISTORY means reviewing and rewriting a part of Sicilian history to which little attention has been paid, valorising its heritage and attempting to transform a romanticised vision that proliferates in the representation of an underdeveloped and backward South, at the same time stratified by cultures and dominations.

AFTERLIFE means starting again with a new form of historicisation in order to change the point of view and investigate the possibilities of the area by offering a second life to its architecture.
During the 8-day festival, we will take you to 10 different cities for explorations, performances, music and talks.

Curatorial Team:

Pietro Airoldi, Lisa Andreani, Jacopo Costanzo (WAR), Zeno Franchini (LOTS/Marginal), Francesca Gattello (LOTS/Marginal), Valeria Guerrisi (WAR) e Izabela Anna Moren (FSR).

The project is the winner of the public call ‘Festival Architettura – II edition’ promoted by the Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity of the Italian Ministry of Culture.
