Abstract

In the 20th century the discussion about the Messina Strait’s Bridge had remarkable importance. It peaked in 1969, when the international ideas competition for the bridge was announced. Twelve projects were awarded, including those by Pier Luigi Nervi (1891-1979), Sergio Musmeci (1926-1981) and Giuseppe Samonà (1898-1983). Also artists, inventors and less known technicians set about solving the crossing’s problem: the contribution is focused on three projects, designed at the end of the Sixties by the American architect and artist Theodore Waddell (1928-2018), by the architect Rinaldo Semino (1937) and by the engineer Lorenzo Tortolina. The three proposals underline the researches which fed the architectural and urbanistic debate in the second part of the 20th century.
