Title Note:Palermo Atlas charts a territory at the epicentre of key transformations of our time. More then a city, Palermo is a node in an expanded geography of flows - of people, capital, goods, data and species. Although historically Arab-Norman, the Silician capital has been reshaped by recent migrations and now counts Tamil, Somali and Nigerian identities as part of a complex anatomy. Its markets and architecture, nature and ecosystem, harbours and maritime routes make it a laboratory for cross-pollination and an incubator of global conditions. At the same time, Palermo`s controversial modern history has left indelible traces - physical, emotional and political - and a unique legacy of civic experimentation. This study, commissioned by Manifesta 12 and undertaken by the Office for Metropolitan Architecture, represents an alternative model for pre-biennial exploration, and is based on an omnivorous collection of stories gathered on the ground, telling of people, places, events and possibilities. With forewords by mayor of Palermo Leoluca Orlando and director of Manifesta Hedwig Fijen, it brings together the views of local observers such as Letizia Battaglia, Franco Maresco and Giorgio Vasta, along with critical texts by Marina Otero Verzier, Nora Akawi and Giuseppe Barbera, to ask whether Palermo might serve as a prototype for the world to come.
