A Masterpiece of Contemporary Art Set in the Sicilian Landscape

The Cretto di Burri is an extraordinary work created by the Italian artist Alberto Burri. Located in Gibellina, a few kilometers from Trapani, this masterpiece is a fusion of abstract art and breathtaking landscape. The work arose from the tragedy of the 1968 Belice earthquake, which destroyed the original village. Burri transformed the ruins into a unique installation, creating a kind of “crack” in the ground with white boulders.
