Metadesign strategies for compatible reuse: the case of the single hall churches in Catania



This study proposes a meta-approach to the problem of compatible reuse, applied in Catania to the brotherhoods single hall churches, often underused or disused. After making a cataloguing and expeditious anamnesis, we have analysed a framework of needs that would consider the settlement needs in the urban context. Having inserted the data collection in the system, we performed an assessment of compatibility of reuse that satisfies the historic building protection, the reversibility of possible action, and the requirements of the new undertaken functions.
