Starting point

Contrada San Giovanni

It starts from Contrada San Giovanni (Calatafimi-Segesta) and reaches Gibellina Nuova, built from scratch after the earthquake that in 1968 razed most of the municipalities of the Belìce Valley to the ground. Here, the then mayor Ludovico Corrao wanted to launch an ambitious urban design project that would turn it into the largest open-air museum in Italy. It then continues through the Finestrelle woods, home to an adventure park, and reaches, finally, Burri’s imposing Cretto. Covering 80,000 square metres, it is one of the largest land art works in the world; representing a shroud spread over the rubble of the old town of Gibellina, Alberto Burri was able to set the tragic earthquake of 1968 in perpetual memory. We will return to the starting point crossing a stretch of State Road 119 closed to vehicular traffic.
