Dry stone constructions are widespread throughout many regions across the world, in a widevariety of forms, according to the environmental and socio-economic contexts, and constitute a valuableknow-how which is today in danger of disappearing. In Sicily dry stone works have traditionally been used inthe area of Val di Noto where they constitute a key character of the landscape, and in the Madonie Mounts inwhich some policies of enhancement have been recently initiated. In the framework of the Grundtvig programme“La préservation du patrimoine architectural bâti en pierre sèche”, an in-depth analysis of these architectureshave been pursued, aiming to create a database inventory. This paper illustrates the peculiar featuresof dry stone heritage in Sicily, as an environmental and territorial resource.
