Abstract

Innovative methods for knowledge, diagnostics and communication of buildings and artifacts, combined with traditional processes of historical investigation, have been the instrument through which draw up a proposal for the conservation, the real and virtual fruition and the valorization of the necropolis of Realmese in Calascibetta (Enna, Italy). In 1949, this settlement was unearthed, but despite some actions carried out for its safeguarding and for improving its accessibility, it has not yet received the right attention and appreciation. This study has allowed reflecting both upon new approaches to the issue of the restoration and promotion of rock-cut sites and, at the same time, the possibilities of protection and valorization of the delicate archaeological grave goods there discovered. The main purpose is that of understanding the complexity of this particular architectural natural and human site, its cultural peculiarities and criticalities, in order to establish the most appropriate solutions for its survival.
