Abstract

In southern Italy and in Sicily, over the past forty years, a series of urban redevelopment projects have been carried out, involving the construction of small theaters facing the Mediterranean landscape. !ey are re-invention projects of the archetype of the Greek theater that establish with the external landscape the same “sense of contemplation” expressed by the theaters of antiquity. Despite their privileged position, these theaters are occasionally used in the summer periods for tourist entertainment shows. Shows substantially distant from those of the past, as they lack an “educational” idea aimed at the construction of processes of self-recognition and identification.
