Tukory Course, n. 254, Palermo

Underground gallery

At no. 254 indicated in the file of the bound assets of the Sicily Region there is the following property, indicated by Pietro Todaro: Hemispherical cavity at a depth of about 3 m in corso Tukòry, ang. via Feliciuzza. (Text source: Pietro Todaro: The subsoil of Palermo).

In reality I am not sure if the constraint is instead referable to the following asset cited by Pietro Todaro himself: 

Large underground gallery with a bubble vault, discovered in 1983 during the restoration work of Pona S. Agata. It was accessed through a trap door located at the edge of the sidewalk at the corner with Corso Tukory. It leaves out of the so-called "bad weather aqueduct" built at the end of 1500 by the praetor Salazar as a gutter. Bsso was destined to collect the waters upstream of Kemonia, starting from the Garofala pit. adducing them along the carlina of the southern sixteenth-century walls to the sea of ​​S. Erasmo (Fig. 68). (Text source: Pietro Todaro: The subsoil of Palermo - 1988)

Property bound under the law 1089/1939 (DM 08/08/1949).
