Gibellina, whose name derives from the Jebel (mountain) and Zghir (small) and which together mean: small mountain, is located in the province of Trapani, in the Valle del Belice. Gibellina's history is ancient with the first settlements dating back to before the Greeks. Gibellina, like Poggioreale, was destroyed by the 1968 earthquake in Belice. Many artists participated in its reconstruction, and today Gibellina is known as one of the major cultural centers of Sicily.
You can admire open-air works of art in Gibellina such as secret gardens, the door of Belice and the monument to the fallen. There are also many great works of art inside the main cathedral, the famous Chiesa Madre or in the renowned Museum of Contemporary Art. The "Cretto" is a monumental work. A giant monument dedicated to death and memory, inside which remain the ruins of ancient Gibellina. Created in 1984 by Alberto Burri, it is one of today's most extraordinary examples of land art.

Vitti 'na crozza (Vidi un teschio) è una famosa canzone popolare siciliana su testo di autore sconosciuto, musicata dal compositore Franco Li Causi. La prima versione era un canto di lavoro, dai toni lenti e cupi, aderenti alla cadenza poetica del testo. Negli anni 1970 si adattò il canto a toni più spensierati, nel solco del clima dei gruppi folkloristici, e adattato a ballata popolare. 🎼 🌅 "Vitti 'na crozza (I see a skull) is a famous Sicilian folk song based on a text by an unknown author, music by the composer Franco Li Causi.The first version was a work song, with dark and gloomy tones, adhering to the poetic cadence of the text .
