Scala dei Turchi

Scala dei Turchi o escalera de los turcos es un acantilado situado en Realmonte, cerca de Empedocle (sur de Sicilia). La escalera de roca blanca, es un mármol que con el tiempo se ha ido deformando hasta semejar una escalera. Los piratas sarracenos atacaban habitualmente esta playa, de ahí su nombre: escalera de los turcos.
En la parte inferior del acantilado, se ha formado una playa con la erosión del macizo rocoso. El lugar ha sido propuesto junto con la Villa Aurea para ser incluido en la UNESCO.

Cittadella Bridge by Richard Meier & Partners Architects | Bridges

Richard Meier & Partners has completed its first pedestrian and vehicular bridge. With a surface area of approximately 4,150 meters and a length of 185 meters, the new Cittadella Bridge is a precast-concrete and painted-steel modern structure designed to connect the city of Alessandria, Italy with the 18th-century citadel across the Tanaro River in northwestern Italy. During the flooding of Alessandria in 1994, not only did the water level reach the roadway, but also the piers of the Napoleonic Cittadella Bridge caught much of the debris in the river, effectively acting as a dam. The new design, a single span raised above the flood plain, not only solves that problem, but also reconnects the fabric of the modern city with the Cittadella, an 18th century fort and tentative UNESCO Richard Meier comments: “More than 20 years after the initial commission to design a new bridge between the city of Alessandria and the old citadel, I am extremely pleased to have completed this new modern l… continue
