The Vincenzo Bellini Garden in Catania: An anthropological perspective
AbstractThis article is linked to the field of urban anthropology. The aim of my work was to investigate the “Giardino comunale Vincenzo Bellini” in Catania as a turning point for the civic and cultural life within urban space. The study moved from the idea that “Giardino Bellini” is not only a central urban space due to its position and history, but also represents a perfect location for reading social dynamics which are crucial in the city life. A “Villa” – so is the Giardino Bellini better known by Cataneses – can therefore assume a great anthropological significance, which was studied through a placed and relationship-wise analysis. However, this was open to a diachronic perspective able to understand how civic memories converge in this space-urban hub.
