This work of Giuseppe Arcidiacono investigates the baroque centers of the Noto Valley and the street plans from the second half of the 1700's until the advent of the railroad; he faces the thematic regarding the Siracusa-Ragusa-Licata railroad with respect to the national and isolane vicissitudes of the railways; he reconstructs the way of building, the constructive technical writing, techniques and elements of the railroad from Siracusa to Licata, asking himself about the problems of how such an opera might be useful again.
