Abstract

years of stratification, involves an inevitable confrontation withobjects, traces and relics, hidden or in plain sight. The project con-text is treated as an resource, and as suchs exploited. In the past, itwas common practice to build with and on the remains of ancientbuildings, and architecture attempted only to delay the ultimate, ine-vitable loss of buildings. With the aim of bringing back to life bothhistorical memory and imaginary legends, we have taken steps torecover both the potential of a deeply stratified areas and some of theoriginal significance of the areas, in response to the suggestions prof-fered by the site’s powerful mythological connotations. In the areas ofinterventions, in ortigia island, there is retained the original ancientGreek layout of Ippodamian system, streets and passages. The Greekcourtyard, The Artemis Garden and The Pavilion of Artemis are pro-jects of recostruction and recuperation on the ruins of Artemis tem-ple, near the temple of Athena
