Building Sites in Sardinia between the 10th and 15th centuries. A comparison between local and other
influences from the Mediterranean Area on construction techniques
The article deals with building sites and construction techniques particularly in the period between the 10th and the 15th centuries, the time when the Sardinian Judicates came into being, developed and fell from power. The aim is to contribute to increasing historical-critical knowledge about the organisation of these sites and medieval construction techniques in Sardinia. The article gives a detailed account of the technological, linguistic, typological characteristics and specificities of the sites in question. These are then compared and contrasted so as to identify the links and affinities that characterise and assimilate them, allowing us to hypothesise the origins and provenance of the workers who worked there, their cultural formation, the way they moved around the region, the presence of leading artistic figures on the ‘national’ scene and, given the importance of Sardinian courts in the Middle Ages, also on the ‘international’ one.
