The area of the Strait of Messina, covering as trip of land that runs from Gioia Tauro to Melito Porto Salvo, on the Calabrian side and from Milazzo to Giardini Naxos on the Sicilian side, is bounded by the Aspromonte Massif and Peloritani Chain that create a room in the landscape: the empty water square of the Strait. The Strait described in the plans proposed by Giuseppe and Alberto Samonà, Ludovico Quaroni, Antonio Quistelli, Sergio Musmeci, Paolo d'Orsi Villani, Leonardo Urbani, shows in the main towns of Reggio Calabria and Messina aspatial Euclidean metric recognizable in the precise design of the block drawn during the postwar period. The extension in length that characterizes this territory determines transport problems. The Strait is daily crossed, by the network of links between the two sides as filaments of a commuter traffic between two strips of land whose distance has always been too small to separate their destinies and too wide to facilitate the union. It follows the need for a reflection about the infrastructural system of the district, about the issues of accessibility and of crossing; the system of ports and airports as access doors to the entire geographical area in scale with the nature and size o fits traffics.
