Documenti per la storia dell'architettura

Risultato della ricerca: Other report


This book was written to address the need to enhance, through new contributions, the knowledge of construction yards in Modern Age Sicilian architecture based on the information from archival documents which are indispensable sources of direct news on the actual work to erect buildings and at times hide valuable information about the origin of the architects and the design models in the language used. The essays by Alessia Garozzo and Federica Scibilia on the sixteenth-century construction yards of the Cathedral of Messina and the Church of the Annunziata in Trapani respectively, are two important case studies of sixteenthcentury architecture in Sicily and provide novel insights on the organization of the yard and the professional figures involved. The contributions by Fulvia Scaduto and Armando Antista are aimed, instead, at drawing up a glossary of construction terms from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century and collect the technical terms found in the documents discovered and selected as part of the COSMED research project, offering yet another building block in the history of construction.
