Giovanna Tomaselli, Giuseppe Pappalardo, Maria Di Marco, Patrizia Russo


This study aims to propose building solutions suitable for sheep and goat breeding within the
Park of the Nebrodis (situated in North-Eastern Sicily, the largest Italian island), or within protected
areas having similar characteristics. A sample of farms was studied to understand the specific
demands of breeding. The data collected supports a set of useful guidelines for the organizational
schemes and metadesign proposals for specific building solutions with low environmental impact.
