In particolare, in Libano, negli ultimi anni il settore delle costruzioni ha registrato un vero e proprio “boom”, per l’aumento della liquidità nella Regione Araba, per le riforme implementate dal Governo Libanese, per le misure fiscali e per le rimesse della diaspora libanese, che nel solo 2009, anno della crisi internazionale, hanno superato 7 miliardi di dollari.

Sicily has always been a place of meetings, of people, of experiments and of languages, and this peculiarity has always marked its economic and artistic history.
The work of APPA is inspired by these beginnings: meeting and exchange between cultures. Amongst the periods of greatest cultural richness and dynamism in Sicily was what we refer to as the trilingual period, under Ruggero II, in the twelfth century. At that time Greeks, Arabs and Romans worked in royal workshops, producing some of the greatest masterpieces of Architecture. Today, the current climate, characterised by profound migration, presents similar characteristics that could allow Sicily to become again a place of meeting, of the passing of people, of the sedimentation of elements of different cultures. APPA, acknowledging the extent to which the Arab influence on Sicilian culture is still present and the debt Italian culture as a whole owes this matrix, puts itself forward as a place of exchange and meeting between different cultures, as a place of experimentation and of the application of history as an inspiration for contemporary Architecture project in the Mediterranean and in Sicily in particular.
