INDICATORI PER LAVALUTAZIONE DELLA POTENZIALITÀ TURISTICO-RICETTIVA DI EDIFICI RURALI TRADIZIONALI

Abstract

To assess tourist potential use of traditional rural buildings two indices are determined. Indicator n. 1 regards the degree of adaptability of the tourist use to the territorial context; indicator n. 2 regards the degree of adaptability of the tourist use to the morphological features of the buildings. The method which aims to assess the above-mentioned indices is divided into two phases. The first phase regards the knowledge of the traditional rural buildings. Survey cards A and B allow to get information needed for the assessment of the factors which influence the two indices. The second phase provides the application of a multicriteria model which allows the assessment of the two indices. The method has been applied to six traditional rural buildings sited in a homogeneous area in south eastern Sicily. The results show that although the degree of adaptability of the tourist use to the territorial context is high for almost all the considered buildings (indicator n. 1), only two buildings have a high degree of adaptability of the tourist use to the morphological features (indicator n. 2).
