L'architettura delle Tonnare
Author: Massimo Lo Curzio
The patrimony constituted by the rests of such structures is very important because it indicates and shows the ways and the places of the historical organization of a productive field of extreme relief. Of the fifty to tonnare resulting from a census of the beginning of the 1800's remain today just little, ill treated but very important rests, spectral presences that have a no relationship with the current state of the coasts.
This job faces the problem of the study of this patrimony and of a research about the possibilities of action on this patrimony taking in account in specific way the role that the architectures of production can carry out.
A first work, aimed to the location of the main topics of the task and to the definition of a key for the reading of the phenomenon, is followed by two subsequent planning works regarding a fisherman village in Marzameni (Pachino) and the recovery of the tunny-fishery of Santa Panagia near Siracusa.
The description of one closes the volume A day of mattanza narrated through one series of photographic images.
