Santiago Calatrava e Palermo



In una recente intervista al Telegraph l'archistar alla domanda (link):

Is there somewhere in the Mediterranean that you particularly admire?

Risponde così:

Sicily and Palermo where you have some amazing examples of Norman architecture. It’s interesting because there is a transitional period where the Mediterranean architecture moves towards the Gothic. Then when you go to northern Europe and see those enormous extraordinary monuments in France, Germany, Belgium and England you can see that the roots technically and constructively - in terms of the flying buttresses, domes, vaults, and the ogival arc - come from the Mediterranean via the Normans.
