  • Procedure integrate di analisi e rilievo dell’Arco di Traiano a
           Benevento per il restauro e la valorizzazione

    • Authors: Marcello Balzani
      Abstract: During restoration works carried out under the direction of the Archaeological Superintendence of Salerno, Avellino and Benevento, a three-dimensional survey was carried out aimed at the documentation of performed restoration works, setting-up for museum exhibitions and the monitoring of the Arco di Traiano in Benevento. The potentialities of 3D documentation are wide-ranging and not only limited to the cataloguing, but aimed at different kind of development: analysis of details, planning and structuring of restoration and conservation works, 3D printing to realize scaled copies without plaster cast operations, mapping of the state of conservation. The 3D model becomes a tool of knowledge and analysis, the use of which is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years, also in relation to the increase in computing power and graphical display of devices such as notebooks, tablets, smartphones and dissemination of "broadband" for the interconnection of data transmission.

  • La ricomposizione dei frammenti delle mura urbiche di Carlentini
           attraverso l’interpretazione di documenti inediti

    • Authors: Emanuele Romeo
      Abstract: The goal of the restoration of the city walls of Carlentini was to salvage the meaning of this work both as a urban system with cultural value. The work is the document of the history and material culture of a town that has preserved its road network nearly unchanged over the centuries, but has suffered the alterations in the residential buildings and the continuous disintegration of this fortified complex. With the help of unpublished cartographic sources, it was indeed possible to add, to the sections of walls still visible, those that were hidden under the building expansion of the last fifty years, thus ideally reconstructing the entire fortification. After these investigations, only a few portions of the original defensive work turned out to be completely lost or partially collapsed. Indeed, thanks to the knowledge acquired over a greater extension of the walls, the protection institutions have had to manage a larger and more complex fortification system than previously thought.

  • Studi e riflessioni per la salvaguardia e valorizzazione della cripta di
           Sant'Eusebio a Pavia

    • Authors: Alessio Cardaci, Antonella Versaci
      Abstract: Located in Pavia, in an area that owes its importance to the Longobards era, the crypt of St. Eusebius is today the only surviving evidence of an ancient Germanic Cathedral, perhaps dating from the reign of King Rotari. Cited by Paolo Diacono in his Historia Langobardorum, it was over time affected by various alterations, devastations and assaults, alternated with long and dusty periods of neglect, which inevitably affected its dignity. This important 'monumental ruin', for too long confined within a structure that prevents its correct perception and public enjoyment, has recently been interested by new multidisciplinary studies and investigations aimed at improving its critical knowledge and understanding and then at establishing necessary conservation and valorisation activities, able to underline its high monumental value, improve its accessibility and ensure its transmission to future generations.

  • Sistemi di documentazione per l’analisi ed il progetto di recupero del
           forte San Lorenzo el Real del Chagre, Colón, Panama

    • Authors: Sandro Parrinello, Francesca Picchio
      Abstract: The paper is a summary of some studies that have focused on the documentation for the restoration and enhancement of the Fort San Lorenzo el Real del Chagres in Panama. The aim of the project is to develop an experimental methodology for the creation of descriptive atlases with an informative and reliable metric survey systems; a documentary corpus necessary for the understanding of the historical events which have affected this place, today declared UNESCO heritage, and for the definition of guidelines for restoration and enhancement. The monument is unique for both the special relationship with the surrounding context for defensive strategies terms, and for the deep connection with the events that have affected not only the colonization and development of Panama, but the entire Central America. From the first project of a "Castillo" to the creation of present's fortified fortress overlooking the outfall of the Chagres River, the paper is going to explain the major historical events that have influenced the image of the building, illustrating the documentation and the recovery project.

  • Sistemi fortificati piemontesi nel paesaggio costiero urbano di Cagliari:
           approcci interdisciplinari al progetto di restauro del rudere di

    • Authors: Carlo Atzeni, Donatella Rita Fiorino
      Abstract: This research investigates the effectiveness of Brandi’s ‘uniqueness of method’ principle for the preservation of multi-layered archaeological landscapes, with particular reference to coastal defence systems in urban area. These are strategic places for the defence of historic settlements that are characterized by the persistence of military use from the old age until modern times. The enhancement of these places goes through the integrated knowledge of the artefacts and the deep understanding of mutual contextual relationships at the different scales of analysis - historical, material, architectural, stratigraphic, conservative - in order to generate design projects compatible with the preservation of historical and testimonial values. The paper illustrates the results of integrated scientific investigations and educational programmes conducted on the archaeological defensive area of the Sant’Ignazio fort in Cagliari, built between 1783 and 1798 but never put into service. Reversible and recognizable functional addictions have been designed, interpreting the memory-space-matter triad. These reading deals with Heritage in a contemporary view, according to the idea of continuity in the historical process and confirming the potential of the formal principles of the overlap, integration, support and suspension.

  • Il Follone di Pinerolo (TO), da rinomata manifattura a rudere urbano:
           prospettive di salvaguardia della memoria

    • Authors: Riccardo Rudiero
      Abstract: The city of Pinerolo was being an important production center thanks to the presence of the Rio Moirano, a flume already documented in the 13th century. Alongside its banks, most of the city's manufactories have been installed, which have been gradually abandoned due to the sector's crisis in the 20th century. Among them, the lace-factory Türk is of particular importance. It settled into the 18th-century Follone, considered among the first modern woolen processing centers. Unfortunate-ly, this building is now in precarious conditions because of the lack of care and protection. Moreover, a part of it has been devastated by a fire and so it is a ruin. Therefore, both materia-lity and memory of this production complex are precarious, due to different conversion hy-potheses which have foreseen the abatement of the building. The article aims to outline the history of this factory-flume system through edited and archi-ved documents, re-examining the instruments used to pursue its protection.

  • San Michele Arcangelo a Metelliano, Pieve in val D’Asse: metodologie per
           il rilevo, la documentazione, la conservazione e la valorizzazione

    • Authors: Giovanni Pancani
      Abstract: The Pieve of San Michele Arcangelo in Metelliano is part of the the territory of Arezzo, in particular is located near Cortona, in the Val d'Esse, at the edge of the Chiana Valley. The eleventh century church, built in a phase immediately preceding to the full maturity of the Romanesque, was rebuilt by the architect Maginardo from Arezzo. The paper considers the problem of the methods and investigation protocols relating to the historical archaeological monuments. For the realization of this study, the work was organized according to the main topics: the survey, its certified reliability, the graphic documentation with the identification of materials and structural problems. For the representation of the drawings, in this first session of studies thematic maps have been created that contain information regarding the identification of materials and the state of degradation; In addition the building's structural survey was made, flanked by evaluation of plastic deformation of the facades.

  • Archeologia ferroviaria: la stazione di Fermo e le opere d’arte della
           Ferrovia Adriatico Appennino.

    • Authors: Mauro Saracco, Leonardo Petetta, Chiara Cecchi
      Abstract: The italian railway network has several disused lines and many of them cross high-quality landscapes. The artifacts, built to realize these infrastructural networks, remain in rural and mountain areas as 'archaeological ruins' of larger and extensive works. The conservation and enhancement of these 'ruins', allows not to miss an important historical and material evidences, of social and economic development of many Italian regions. In this perspective has been addressed the study of the Railway Adriatico-Amandola, in the Marche region, and the ex-railway station of Fermo, defining a possible pilot project able to recover the historical memory of the places through a compatible reuse and a new relationship with the city and the territory.
