I Borghi

The rural villages established in Sicily are numerous and distinguish themselves by period of foundation, architectural features, services and intended purposes. Even today cataloguing is difficult and complex as the archive material has not been systematised and the institutions have often dispersed the documents throughout the years.
The archived material allows to outline and deepen the specific aspects leading to the foundation, life and abandonment of Sicilian rural villages. Moreover, we have set up a section for the reading and listening, supported by a “Listening Guidance”, of the sound characteristics of each ‘borgo’.
