The contribution presents a study of various funeral chapels found in the cemetery of Sant'Orsola in Palermo. Realised during the 19th and 20th centuries, they van be taken as examples of Sicilian Orientalism. An original reading of the Rutelli Chapel, starting from the unpublished survey of its current state, provides an understanding of its geometry and morphology. The survey was conducted using the techniques of Structure from Motion. The Rutelli Chapel offers a very interesting example of architecture that demonstrates several similarities with some Mamluk mausoleums in Cairo.
