NameSaverio Fragapane (1871-1957)
DescriptionFrom the beginning of the twentieth century to the twenties is active in Caltagirone architect Xavier Fragapane, a student of Ernesto Basile and leading figure of Art Nouveau and Art Deco in eastern Sicily. To him we owe the development plans and the most important projects of public utility buildings and various types of urban homes and stately villas and economic promoted during the period when he was mayor of the city pro Don Luigi Sturzo. The author, on the basis of unpublished material - documents, sketches and drawings, photographs - gives a complete reconstruction of the personality of Fragapane. In the first part of the book into several chapters, it circumscribes the cultural formation and style, from Art Nouveau to Art Deco and epilogue rationalist, with reference to problems and specificities of the territory and the cultural intricacies that determine its own conception of a 'modern architecture, made ​​for man. The second part examines all projects, the proposed zoning, buildings executed. The volume is therefore as a monographic study exhaustive, for the novelty of the news and the wealth of illustrations, and is also a useful contribution to broaden and deepen their knowledge of local issues and influences of Art Nouveau and Secession architecture liberty which is developed by the school of Basile.
