Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

[automatically translated] The essay makes an excursus on the design of some structural elements of medieval Sicilian who may have been influenced by Islamic similar examples. In particular it focuses on connecting and transition systems (corner trumpets) from the square base of the hemisphere walls of the dome and the fragmentation and combination of these elements. From niche trumpet of the Church of San Cataldo, the most complex trumpets of St. John of the Hermits, until reaching the multiplication of the conical connecting structures of the Church of Saints Peter and Paul in Casalvecchio Siculo.
