|SECTIONING||This unit is divided into 2 sections:|
The following main topics will be investigated in the teaching:
The course proposes an itinerary around the idea of conservation / restoration which has as its final goal a mature and well-founded critical reflection on the themes of responsibility, respect, the specificity of the architectural heritage of cultural interest and the sustainability of its restoration. Fundamental themes of the culture of conservation and restoration will be addressed, declined in a broad sense, because they cannot be perceived as the prerogative of a small circle of lovers of the subject, but must be declined in such a way as to be closely linked to the reflection that everyone is held to develop towards the society in which he lives and which he will contribute, with his work, study and planning, to modify in various ways, so that these are culturally founded, acceptable and sustainable in a broad sense. The purpose of the course is aimed at a critical study of some issues related to the fundamental question of "why is it preserved / restored" in the contemporary world.
The course aims to provide students with the basic knowledge and skills of the disciplines of conservation and restoration, together with the ability to understand them, re-elaborate them in critical ways and use them a support of future intentions and design choices.
Any basic knowledge of a general historical nature and, in particular, of the history of architecture and art constitutes an essential starting point for understanding the specific contents of the teaching. Basic concepts of philosophy and knowledge of materials, construction techniques and the degradation processes of existing building components and structures, ancient and modern structural concepts, methods of reading and analyzing existing architectures in general are also useful.
The course includes lectures of a frontal nature, also with seminars by external experts, collective discussions between teacher and students and makes use of audiovisual aids regularly made available on Aula Web.
In summary, the course investigates the following main themes (not exclusively in chronological succession):
From the lessons will emerge words, concepts that the student must demonstrate to know and use correctly, respecting their historically determined nature (authentic, original, original, truth-true, likely, false, identity, completeness, completeness, fragment, decorum, cleanliness, readability , stability, functionality, usability, reusability, reversibility, compatibility, ...). The student must also know the fundamental elements of the biographies of the authors cited, their main written works and the examples of ancient and recent restorations attributable to them and illustrated in the course. The materials used to support the lessons will be included in the web classroom together with some of the texts indicated in the bibliography.
The main bibliographic sources are in Italian and so we make directly reference to the Italian text of the Teaching record.
Substitutive or integrative bibliographic references in other languages and manly in English, will be in any case provided for foreign students.
Office hours: Before and after the Laboratory and the lessons of Fundaments of Restoration, or by appointment

The final exam consists of an interview developed starting from a restoration project and intervention, chosen by the candidate not necessarily among those treated during the lessons. The second question will concern the figure, the thought and the theoretical and practical work (texts and projects) of a protagonist in the history of restoration, among those addressed during the intervention lessons. The third question will follow the development of the interview.
The assesment of the acquired knoledges and competences will be purued through intermediate inquiries among the participants students, through specific interactive software platforms, and mainly through the final exam.
