Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


The manifold relationships between the architectural heritage and its context represent an essential element in order to understand,preserve and enhance the identity of a site, by adopting an approach that embraces the complexity of all its dimensions.The contemporary landscape still preserves traces of the Past in different perceptible forms, but often there isn’t enough awarenessof this. The ‘cultural routes’ can be an instrument to give back readability to the system of connections between sites andtheir contexts, that is one of the objectives of the heritage enhancement.After presenting a general framework of the topic, the paper illustrates a proposed itinerary which retraces the ancient Via Selinuntinaalong the southern coast of Sicily. The itinerary, with its extraordinary rural and natural landscapes, connects some archaeologicalsites, featured by domestic architecture, and recalls the intangible heritage of those places. This proposal in 2014was part of the activities developed within the APER Project (Architettura domestica Punica Ellenistica e Romana / Punic Hellenisticand Roman domestic Architecture), funded by the Cross-Border Cooperation Programme Italie-Tunisie 2007-2013.
