Cover all Via F. Buttita, running parallel to the highway. Having reached the end of Via Buttita, turn right and take the third street on the left, that is Via Città di Palermo.
After the cross with Via Dante, the name of the street changes into Via Ing. G. Bagnera, and the road continues until it converges with the State Road (S.S.) 113. Turn right into the State Road. In a little while you will find the Rizzoli-Sicilia Department of the Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute on your left. Several signposts of the Institute are placed on the rout.
