Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


The paper shows throught some examples the foundamental characters of the sicilian landscape, that in some particular areas of the region is designed, bulit and modelled with different stone materials. The island of Favignana is completely dominated by calcareous stone that create relations with the "locus" identity. The island of Pantelleria entirely built with vulcanic stone material or Lampedusa where the stone is used for the construction of the typical "mandre" dividing lands and gardens. For this and other reason the knowledge of the different identity features of the various territories is necessary to create tools to increase the value of lands based on sustainable use of the natural resources.
