Abstract

In the world it lies a fortune of uncompleted and/or abandoned areas and buildings, both public and private, which amount to around 600 estates alone in Italy. The regeneration of these sites is, therefore, essential which is what led to the creation of the app - "[Im] possible living" – so as to map them and create a virtual community aiming at a recovery project. You can do a redevelopment of modern buildings through an architectural restyling encapsulating, i.e. covering the existing building with a new skin, protecting it, thus avoiding the costs of demolition and waste disposal, and then inserting new volumes, without neglecting its inclusion in the environmental context. A bit like Peter Zumthor did with the Kolumba Museum overlaying the late Gothic Basilica in Cologne, with the Aidone thesis of the Museum of Applied Arts in an abandoned building, where the aforementioned technique was used on a modern reinforced concrete building, however. This architectural ploy is one of the actions of "Officiamuseum Sicily", that is to say a strategic project to creating a Regional Museum System of Design and Applied Arts, rich in an active artistic craftsmanship, with the Aidone Museum as its core. This area will be transformed into a HUB creative, economic and tourist centre, relocating the small town in the centre of a tourist district, the heart of the Sicilian integrated relational tourism.
