Abstract

Most of the Italian architectonic patrimony is made up of little villages well integrated with the territory. This research is directed towards three Micro_Cities on the Sicilian Ionic coast showing: three examples of integration between site, architecture and space fruition. On the Strait of Messina the landscape has delineated some “great rooms”, i.e. spatial surrounding, looking out over the sea. The Micro_Cities that we have chosen are part of this complex system. The area to which these “rooms” belong is closed at the back by Peloritani Mountains, on lateral sides by Cape Sant’Alessio and Cape Alì and the ground is inclined in the direction of the coast line. The research analyses, with the same method, Mandanici, Forza D’Agrò and Alì. This study mixes the usual investigations on the surveys with the unconventional analysis related to the fruition of the space. The method, innervated by an essential structure, is an open path that directs you to the perception and comprehension of these sites. The whole village centre has been analysed with conventional surveying by hand while the architectural highlights have been surveyed by laser-scanning techniques. The representation of each Micro_City also comprehends: a. site plans and some re-elaborations that take into account the texture and the local factors; b. territorial cross sections that illustrate the relationship between the village and the landscape; c. navigable 3D models; d. graphic re-elaboration of the data related to the fruition of exterior spaces by local population.
