Gli ospedali di Palermo e Messina tra XVI e XVII secolo: architettura, servizi e spazio urbano


A competition for the primacy in the Island took place during the 16th century in Palermo and Messina, the two main Sicilian cities at that time, thus establishing the grounds for comparison in architectural and urban construction sites. This assumption is also confirmed in the design of the “places of care” – modern hospitals which both cities were equipped with – with a focus, in addition to the efficiency of the new institutions, to the quality of the architectural image and the urban location.
