About 20 kilometers downstream, the old Gibellina site was rebuilt after it was completely destroyed in the 1968 Belice earthquake. Ludovico Corrao was the former mayor of the town. He had the brilliant idea to make the territory more humane by inviting Gibellina to be visited by many famous artists around the world.
Alberto Burri created the Great Cretto. This is one of the greatest works of Land Art in the world. It is a monument to death, in the eternal memory of its destruction.
