Photographer's Note

The district of Kalsa in Palermo is in redevelopment. Situated near the sea, it always wears the aftereffects of the bombardments of the Second World War and also of the1968抯 earthquake. During the araba occupation, it was the most beautiful district of the city. Today, it is a popular district but that begins to become respectable with the renovation of buildings and also sometimes of small houses. Curious mixture of construction sites, big squares, walls left to street artists, ruins but also beautiful buildings.
I was attracted here by the graphic effect of this walled up building having kept its balconies and crossed by the orange water pipes.


Il quartiere del Kalsa a Palermo in piena ricostruzione. Localizzato vicino al mare, porta sempre i postumi dei bombardamenti della seconda guerra mondiale ed anche del terremoto di1968. Durante l'occupazione araba, era il pi bel quartiere della villa. Oggi, un quartiere popolare ma che comincio a imborghesirsi coi rifacimenti di palazzi e anche di casette. Un curioso mescola di cantieri, dei grandi piazze, di muri lasciati agli artisti di via, di rovine ma anche di palazzi bellissimi.
Sono stata attirata qui per l'effetto grafico di questo palazzo murato avendo custodito i suoi balconi attraversati dalle tubi dai acqua arancione.

Un curieux m閘ange de chantiers, de grandes places, de murs laiss閟 aux artistes de rue, de ruines mais aussi de beaux immeubles.
J抋i 閠 attir閑 ici par l抏ffet graphique de cet immeuble mur ayant gard ses balcons travers par les descentes d抏au orange.
