Seeking a reconnection between the Oreto River and Palermo


Sunday April 21 2024 | h 10.30


Represented by Lojacono, recounted by Goethe, today Palermo seeks an almost lost cultural ecosystemic connection. A key element is the Oreto river: a potential green infrastructure that has been forgotten over the last century. Its perception is still characterised by negative aspects: this is why associations working with inhabitants and research are trying to reconstruct its imagery. The landscape is linked, according to the European Landscape Convention, to the perception of it by the community that inhabits the territory in which Oreto river flows: for this reason, a walk in search of the Oreto river's character can lead to reconstructing and re-forming the river's place in our imagination.

Walk leaders:
