Thanks to some autobiographical memories, Andrea Sciascia thinks back to the places and themes explored in the laboratories of architectural and urban design by Giuseppe Di Benedetto, Adriana Sarro and Gianfranco Tuzzolino. The short holiday periods spent when he was a child in Lampedusa and the teaching methology and the research about multiethnic town, carried out with Pasquale Culotta, constitute a system of reference thanks to which Sciascia manages to frame the work of the three teachers of Palermo according to traditional studies at the Faculty of Architecture of Palermo. The essay establishes a network of relationships between some of the latest results of the teaching of architectural design in Palermo and cultural antecedents, which evidently inspired them. The text shows, in parallel, such as the contemporary tragic event of immigration is a responsibility of the civil architecture which, at the beginning of the XXI century, has to answer to important and urgent questions. Responses are able to underline the wealth of ethnic groups and their cultures that arrive on the shres of Italy at the mercy of the sea and the waves.
