The paper analyzes the unpublished photographic documentation in the box n. 111 of the Accascina Fund, stored in the Sicilian Regional Library of Palermo. This unknown archival heritage is crucial in order to trace the artistic aspects of the first rural villages built in Sicily in 1940, following the law for the colonization of the Sicilian rural areas. Through the analysis of these photos, the decorative works that were found in these villages are identified: today most of them no longer exist and, in some cases, there is no other evidence. In this way, the contribution aims to give value to the lost artistic heri- tage and, indirectly, to this part of the Fund. In addition, it seeks to deepen the work of Alfonso Amorelli in some of the villages, studying his decorations and proposing comparisons with other similar works and socio-cultural contexts.
