The historic architecture can have a significant role in the achievement of the European targets about energy efficiency in the construction sector, but this purpose has to be compatible with the conservation of the built heritage and its cultural value. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the specific characters of the historic architecture and its local dimension. This thesis examines the energy performance of historic buildings and its potential improvement by focusing on the architectural heritage of Palermo which is a significant case study for the Mediterranean area. The research is conducted both at the urban scale and at the level of envelope components, following for Palermo a methodology adaptable to other contexts. Through a building categorization of the town historic centre, the thermal simulation (WUFI Plus) of representative buildings and the thermophysical characterization of historic stone walls and calcarenite specimens, this thesis contributes to the development of a knowledge framework, which is the necessary basis of strategies and criteria for a compatible energy improvement of the historic architecture.
