  • Carpenteria di legno dei tetti e dei solai interpiano a pompei nel I
           secolo D.C.

    • Authors: Nicola Ruggieri
      Abstract: The timber elements of the Pompeii’s buildings were subjected to high temperatures during the 79 A.D. Vesuvius’ eruption that entailed the almost total loss of the roofs and inter-floors carpentry heritage.
      However, wooden structures evidences are still present. In fact, many wooden members pockets and frescos representing realistic architectural scenes, compared with the Latin sources, provide precious data for determining floors and roofs structural organization in Pompeii during the 1st century A.D.
      The carpentry configurations, put in evidence in the herein study, are classifiable in several typologies, in dependence of the covered span and the use of the supported room. They vary from floors characterized by one order of beams on which a wooden boarding bears to more complex organizations that include structures identifiable as king post trusses or ante-litteram lattice trusses.

  • Survey, conservation and restoration in Egypt’s Western Desert:
           combining expectations and context

    • Authors: Corinna Rossi
      Abstract: This article discusses the necessity to combine theoretical expectations and practical context in the case of logistically challenging projects, such as the multidisciplinary study of the Late Roman archaeological site of Umm al-Dabadib, located in an remote position at the outskirts of the Kharga Oasis, in Egypt’s Western Desert. This Italo-Egyptian project must conform and respond to rules and regulations from both countries, and faces the problem of identifying the most efficient methodologies to obtain a long-lasting result in an extremely complex environmental context. This article contains a description of the current trends in the management of mud-brick remains in the Egyptian desert environment, and a discussion on the methodology that the will be adopted at Umm al-Dabadib.

  • Musealización de restos arqueológicos en el Cuarto Real de Santo
           Domingo, Granada (España)

    • Authors: Javier Gallego Roca
      Abstract: The integration and creation of a museum to display the archeological remains of the Royal Rooms of Santo Domingo, especially in relation to the Qubba, make this building the most valuable and meaningful ‘piece’ of all the Cuatro’s contents. On this historical platform, the activities proposed for the creation of a museum outlined in the competition rules are easily and suitably organized according to established stratigraphic criteria, with the different architectural elements completing the ideas for the project: the Qubba, the XIX-century palacete (or rather, interventions from the XIX century onwards, according to documented sources which are attached), the romantic garden, and the remains. The project was conceived in a global scale with the aim of achieving the urban recuperation of this significant fragment of the city of Granada; all of this was the inspiration for our idea behind our intervention proposal with its overriding motto: open gardens

  • Il Disegno per la ricostruzione di una storia. Il restauro virtuale del
           Monumento a Costanzo Ciano a Montenero di Livorno

    • Authors: Elena Ippoliti, Laura Carnevali, Fabio Lanfranchi
      Abstract: The study about the Monument devoted to Costanzo Ciano, one of the most symbolic elements of the fascist period, could be considered provocative in such an historical and cultural period signed by human prejudice, but going beyond the writers’ intentions, the aim of this research is to investigate this interesting and emblematic artistic episode of that cultural period. The interest is not only limited to the value of the lost ‘pieces’ belonged to the unfinished mosaic and still scattered on the national territory, but it’s also related to the great and interesting documentary evidences associated to the project. Methodologies framed in the Representation Discipline have been applied for document interpretation, with attention to the ‘virtual restoration’ as the only possible and effective methodology both to recover its formal completeness, as well as of communicate and divulgate it.

  • Rilievo delle lastre tombali del Camposanto Monumentale di Piazza dei
           Miracoli a Pisa

    • Authors: Giovanni Pancani
      Abstract: The research is aimed at a new photogrammetric survey to tackle the restoration of the gravestones of the Pisa’s monumental cemetery. It is situated in “Piazza del Duomo” and it occupies the north side of the extensive complex. The architecture opens into the square with a large marble wall interrupted with a series of blind arches. Inside, the building is arranged around a cloister (110 x 20 meters), over which the four galleries are overlooked, that are the illustrious Pisan burials. The cemetery, built from 1277, was completed in the mid-14th century. During the Second World War, it was heavily bombed and it suffered a fire that caused massive damage. The survey was addressed to using a methodological approach aimed at integrating multiple data acquisition system. Through a 3D laser scanner, a metric-morphological basis was developed on which the subsequent processing was calibrated. A photo capture campaign has been conducted to meet two different types of needs. In the first, a 2D orthophoto was created calibrating the straightened photographic images on the point cloud. In the second a series of partial 3D Mesh models have been performed using Structure from Motion technologies (SFM), where for better evaluation of gravestones degradation it is possible to observe the morphology along with the color.

  • Metodologie di rilievo integrato per indagini diagnostiche non invasive:
           la documentazione della moschea bianca di Al-Jazzar a San Giovanni
           d’Acri, Israele

    • Authors: Francesca Picchio
      Abstract: The White Mosque of Al-Jazzar is the biggest complex in Israel outside the city of Jerusalem. In the center of the fleeting state of coexistence between the Muslim community and the Jewish community, the complex,  part of the UNESCO protection area, is currently involved in a redevelopment project promoted by the Welfare Association and carried forward, in 2017, Experimental Laboratory of Education and Research DAda Lab (Drawing Architecture and Document-Action) of Pavia University and the University and Enterprise Joint Laboratory "Landscape Survey & Design" of the University of Florence and Pavia. The research activities has provided a digital survey of the complex and a diagnostic survey based on the relevant data and aimed at identifying any structural problems. The aim of the research is to create a databases useful for the diagnosis of the walls structural instabilities and to propose a masterplan of hypothesis for the restoration activities aimed also to the promotion of the architectural complex in the Cultural Heritage of the city of Acri.

  • La chiesa di Santa Maria di Campogrosso ad Altavilla Milicia (PA), i
           ruderi di un monumento basiliano tra abbandono, restauri e studi

    • Authors: Zaira Barone
      Abstract: The church of Santa Maria di Campogrosso, long abandoned, is now a ruin. However, this church represents an important historical and architectural witness to the presence of “basiliani” monks in eastern Sicily, much less documented than the western Sicily’s one.
      Moreover, the story of this monument is linked to a very important episode, the Norman conquest of Sicily with the birth of the so-called "arabo-normanna" architecture.
      The essay describes the history of the church between abandonment, restoration and archaeological studies until the present.
