“Art comes in many forms”
Review of Cretto di Burri

Cretto di Burri
Ranked #1 of 12 things to do in Gibellina
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 October 2014

Having visited Ruderi di Poggioreale some 7kms to the east and driven around this area devastated by the January 1968 earthquake we were able to find the site, and whilst managed to get fairly close to it, apparently shouldn't have done as currently closed for renovation work! Even from a slight distance you get a feel for what has been done by Alberto Burri who to quote from the noticeboard, "...transformed the ruins into a work of art. Cement blocks are crossed by regular fissures which basically reproduce the street layout of old.". It is quite fascinating and certainly thought provoking.
