The Quaderno Digitale 9 is dedicated to the archaeological researches conducted in the Early Christian catacomb of Villagrazia di Carini until year 2015. The essay of G. Schirò presents the results of the excavations carried out from 2008 to 2011 in the Gallery IX and the structural analysis of 36 burials. Marco Correra, in the second essay, presents the analysis of the types of closure of the tombs so far excavated, in comparison with other funerary contexts in Sicily, Sardinia and North Africa. Finally, Francesco Scirè and Marta Marescalchi illustrate the project drawn up for the enjoyment of the most representative sectors of the monument, whose visit was inaugurated in May 2015.
