The municipality has 4.882 inhabitants and its area is of 4.501 hectares for a density of population of 108 inhabitants per square kilometre. It rises on a hilly area, 250 metres above sea-level.

Gibellina, from Arab Gebel (mountain, height), expanded in the medieval period as an agricultural village round the castle built in the XIV century by Manfredi Chiaramonte. It was completely destroyed by the earthquake of 1968.

Gibellina was rebuilt at a distance of 18 km. from the previous settlement and a big iron gate, in the shape of the petals of flower was put at the entrance of the town: it is called Stella del Belice (star of the Belice).

The new Gibellina has been built such as a kind of permanent museum of sculptures scattered trhough the streets and the buildings become themselves works of art.

The Cretto of Burri

To this end present-day artists are gathered. Among them there are Arnaldo Pomodoro, Consagra, Isgrò and many others.

To one of them, Alberto Burri, it owes the plan of the arrangement of the ancient Gibellina's ruins.
