The collection of reflections contained in this volume is very useful. We can also understand it from the thought of L. Ron Hubbard who states: Caring for the planet begins with the backyard of one’s home.
The court instead evokes an archetype that appears in the moment of transition from nomadism to sedentary civilization. It manifests itself with the invention of the labyrinth, used to tame the bull and promote its breeding. It therefore represents the rise of palatial civilization and the invention of cities.
The courtyard, a space covered by the sky within the perimeter of a building, brings light and air into the rooms facing it (Treccani). The closed place of the fence, in Sicily is called “baglio”, an open space where the residence-work structure of the Sicilian agricultural fund takes shape. That structure evokes the Roman courtyard house, but also the closed house of Maghrebi culture and origins, one does not exclude the other, indeed both origins sanction belonging to a single common Mediterranean typology (Francesca Fatta). It goes beyond the representation of a simple architectural element becoming, like the square, a cushion of air, a void that encloses a social and human ecosystem which, throughout history, has played a significant role in the life of the cultures of the Mediterranean basin and continues to do so today (Ali Abu Ghanimeh).
