Maestri castigliani di area cantábrica nella Sicilia tra XV e XVI secolo

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


[automatically translated] The Sicilian yard between the fifteenth and sixteenth century is multiethnic. Alongside local architects, the documentary sources reveal the activity of a large number of masters of Genoese area, Lombard, bell, but also operators of Majorcan, Catalan, Valencian. Perhaps minority, but still worthy of attention, are the cases of area teachers Castilian or Cantabrian, which will be the subject of this essay, whose activity on the island is documented since the fifteenth century. From many points of view the mobility and coexistence of different provenance operators lends itself to identifying different nature effects: the languages and technical terms used in the yard and behaviors. As often happens, the forms of selection and hybridization can lead to waste, advancements, new inventions.
