as rocks eroded with time, the syracusans established morphological relationships with the site, searching for the deep value of its genius loci, greek proportions and sicilian colors. with this, vincenzo stile proposes a contemporary lighthouse with a podium where divinity meets the human. the light-emitting tower is incorporated into the plaque that contains the program, offering the privacy of a retired and contemplative life. as this slow blends towards the core of the piazza, public life is also embraced.
