Abstract

The understanding of the urban fabric of Ortigia, peculiar example of stratified city, can not be considered exhaustive if not also concerns the epistemological study of the underground structure of the site of Syracuse, place of our unconscious, recognizing in it the same arcane and the same magic, as if to understand the nature of the mystery of the soul and of the psyche. It is particularly challenging to get into these areas to trace the history of all or just one’s own and, at the same time, to be able to rediscover and recover the tangible signs of an underground intricate fabric that over time has undergone transformations and reuses determined by the evolution of life of those times. The story of the place, the documentary images, the memories, and the medium of memory that acts on man as a tool for identification of investigation are the summands of an intriguing scenario that, in an intention of noble aspirations, are able to define the thin lines of the reasons of the place and the algorithm of the systemic sets and of the textures underlying routes. The reasoned knowledge, carried out through a thorough and detailed historical and representative exploration, wants to give order, direction and extent of the need, planned or spontaneous, that led to the evolution of the introspectively kept spaces. The story unfolds through the eyes of the representation of the subject in the past and the redesign, arduous and complex, of the present, in order to give new life possibilities that are not only related to memory; specifically it aims to be the support to give a colour to the materiality of the cavities, with the aspiration of building a consistent interpretation of the voids, giving sap and vitality to underground spaces.
