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.
