Abstract

Since ancient times, the topography of Enna, a town situated in the Sicilian hinterland at 997 m above sea level, has been considered of considerable interest, especially in terms of territory’s control. The highest level of the urban territory, has for centuries hosted a dense set of architectural and archaeological strata: the so-called citadel of Lombardy. Although once its first nucleus, the site is today completely detached from the urban setting. Restoration carried out in the past have made difficult the understanding of the historical evolution of the monument which appears characterized by a great stratigraphic complexity. Starting from an in-deep archival analysis and from an accurate and all- comprehensive geometric survey (never realized before), this study intends to lay the foundations for its conservation and a sustainable re-connection with the city.
