Palermo Atlas
Publisher: Humboldt Books
30 €

Commissioned by Manifesta 12 and undertaken by the OMA, the Palermo Atlas represents an alternative model for pre-Biennial exploration, and is based on an omnivorous collection of stories gathered in the city. It brings together the views of local observers such as Letizia Battaglia, Franco Maresco and Giorgio Vasta, along with critical texts by Marina Otero, Nora Akawi and Giuseppe Barbera, to ask whether Palermo might serve as an urban prototype for the world to come.

It is possible to purchase Palermo Atlas at the bookshop of the Teatro Garibaldi di Palermo or online on Humboldt Books Website: https://www.humboldtbooks.com/en/book/palermo-atlas-english-ed.
