Analisi della prassi costruttiva locale per la salvaguardia degli elementi tecnici della tradizione: i tetti nell’edilizia minore della sicilia occidentale

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] For several years we conduct research aimed at identifying types of construction of ancient buildings which, by the peculiarities that they have, may constitute design examples for recovery. You want to reconstitute the archaic concept of "art" that if revisited in its constructive values and encoded in its practical aspects, it can assume a certain utility in the recovery of ancient building techniques. We believe that such a goal can be achieved today through historical investigation, from which to infer the empirical way in which the component parts of a building were made, and verifications carried out in scientific terms through the use of modern theories and laboratory tests, enabling an assessment of the benefits provided by the factory elements both in the same state that in the various stages of decay. Here it discusses the methodological path followed until today.
