The Sicilian Landscape. Reuse, Renovation and Financial Feasibility Analysis for a Rural Village

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The rural landscape heritage is a great richness for the Italian territory. Unfortunately, in recent years, he has undergone gradual degradation that have undermined and damaged the original quality characteristics. Interventions of recovery, reuse, repair and renovation of rural areas are needed in order to improve the quality of life and be a point of attraction for the community, whether they are residents, visitors, tourists or businessmen who intend to invest capital and resources. Suitable instrument for a first testing of the convenience viability of private investors interested in setting up operations is the pre-financial feasibility analysis, here used relating to a part of the proposed project. This study aims to reuse a system of rural minor architecture in the Sicilian hinterland, the Grotta Murata Village, for sports and recreation. The goal is to maintain and strengthen the historical memory for future generations through strategic interventions useful for building resilience.
