The essay focuses on two yards of the interior of Sicily between the end of the fifteenth century and the first half of the sixteenthcentury: the mother church of Pietraperzia and that of Assoro. New documentary investigations allowed to set out themaster builders involved in the construction process and to deduce some construction methods in use for churches basilica.These data, together with the direct observation of the buildings have allowed to hypothesize, in both cases, the original configurationof the churches.The hypotheses were supported by a comparison with contemporary building, similar to typological characteristics, and are-reading of the archival documents referring to them, revealing a series of plots that bind sites, master builders and aristocraticpatrons.
