Abstract

Chalks outcrops characterize all the central-western territory in Sicily. They are different in types and extension and tangibly mark the presence of the well-known sulphurus chalky series. In the same areas it is possible to see several traditional buildings built, even in their structures, using gypsum, an material which is unusual in other contexts. In some cases the chalk outcrop makes up even the base of a building. This text describes different kinds of walls, floors, vaults and flooring where gypsum is the main material.
