It happily celebrates the suggestive marriage between the ancient green of rural landscapes and the multicolored abstractions of contemporary art.
It is the irresistible charm of Gibellina, from the Arabic “gebel” height, the new city risen from the rubble of the 1968 Belice earthquake.
In the Salinella district, not far from Salemi, 18 km from Mote Roccatonda where the original stood city centre was.
40 years ago the idea was born of creating from scratch a unique space in the world.
Where world-famous architects, painters, intellectuals and sculptors could experiment their talent in the field by producing an extraordinary graft of modern art on a peasant cultural fabric.
Thus was born New Gibellina.
The symbol of Gibellina and entrance to the Belìce is the Star of Pietro Consagra.

We are talking about hundreds of works including installations, urban interventions and mosaics.

The Cretto of Gibellina, original title Grande Cretto, is a land art work created by Alberto Burri.
Where the old town of Gibellina in Sicily once stood between 1984 and 1989.
As an everlasting memory of the earthquake.
The ruins of the ancient medieval village of Gibellina formed in the XIV century around the Castle built by Manfredi Chiaromonte.
Were covered by a pour of white cement, called Cretto di Burri, named after the artist who built, whose cracks correspond to the road layout of the Old Gibellina.
Burri’s Cretto is one of the most extensive works of contemporary art in the world.
In 1981, Burri covered the ruins of the Sicilian town with a sort of large concrete shroud.
The white alleys that we travel today, similar to deep wounds in the ground, are the same as those of the historic center of the town before the earthquake.
