Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[automatically translated] In this work, derived from the PhD thesis, the Casa C is inserted in the context of more general dell''isolato IV, to which it belongs, which is traced the history of the changes from the foundation dionigiana on, highlighting the problems of interpretation previous syntheses on the urban transformation of the city. Dell''abitazione is provided a detailed description accompanied by a new floor plan and three sections written in 1:50 scale. Through the dual dell''analisi stratigraphic reading of the factory, accompanied by graphic un''esemplificazione the identified masonry techniques, and the petite decodes the geometric characteristics of the project, made explicit through a large number of geometric patterns, is reconstructed the history of the transformations of ' 'Dwelling, also highlighted by a phase plant. The profound changes undergone by Casa C in late antiquity will highlight the implications of the distribution plan of the environment and the likely motivations. It is highlighted, despite the relative simplicity of implementation, a remarkable rigorous design that employs a compositional form coinciding with the plinths of the columns of the peristyle and that subtracts this studio to claim randomness of the design choices that contraddistinguerebbero the 'domestic architecture. In support of this part all the relevant measurements are given in a table such as in linear meters into modules. The result was the possibility of a more solid historical and architectural framework of Casa C, both in reference to the other homes in the peristyle of Hellenistic Sicily it is compared to known examples of the Theatre District of Delos, not on the basis of generic similarities, but specific elements such as Tindari nell''isola Greek. This made it possible to refute, for both centers, previous assessments sull''assialità which element detector of a Roman-Italic clients and abandoning the previous Latin terminology used in describing some dell''abitazione parties, recognizing the still deeply greek character -ellenistico.
