Schirru, Marcello (2008) Palazzi e dimore signorili nella Sardegna del XVIII secolo. [Doctoral Thesis]



In the second half of XVIII century the civil architecture had, in Sardinia, an incresing in production and quality terms. Private investments in building sector determined the development of dwelling market, with initiative setted up by nobilty, of ancient and recent lignace, and by bourgeois class. The government encouraged the achievment of the new well-off classes through the selling of nobility titols, on the financing of civil buildings or the cultivation of huge estates. The works were concentrated in the biggest urban cities of the isle, though we have examples in the inner villages. The buildings don't embrace big palaces. Rich families transformed their houses according to the canons of pedmont baroc architecture. The restiling of the facades was determined by the need to elevate the ancient buildings, in order to obtain new dwellings to be rent. It was clear the will of imitate the prestigious civil architecture financed by the state and built from 1765. The diffusion of savoy `700 language was determined by the partecipation of pedmont designer, many of them military engeeners, to the ideative phase. Decoration and archive sources denotate the contribution of pedmont officials. They featured sardinian architecture of the last `700 with a modern aestetic inspirated to the middle europe, with clear ties to the padan building tradition.
