Abstract

In the 70s, Superintendent Tusa promoted the creation of the Selinunte Park and entrusted the assign- ment to Porcinai, Minissi and Arena. A sophisticated access system was designed, through a combination of landscape and architectural elements, to gradually introduce the archeological tour experience and to manage the delicate relationship with the unauthorized buildings in the surrounding area. The approved project underwent significant changes some of which were in response to the controversy with the local community. In the following years what had survived of the original project was betrayed by further transformations. Forty years on from the start of the construction works and after new attempts to alter the Park, the cur- rent Management has decided to promote the enhancement of the project and to look for ways to pre- serve this contemporary garden. Our research aims to provide a guideline for the planned restorations and the partial rehabilitation of the original project.
