Learning Objectives

The course intends to provide the basics of theory and technique of restoration and a more complete picture of the main themes of protection and conservation, illustrating the basic concepts of safeguarding the cultural heritage.

In addition, specific, theoretical and practical insights will be carried out on topics concerning both the Italian legal framework of protection and the technical aspects such as those related to the programmed maintenance procedures of the cultural heritage. Exemplary restoration cases will be illustrated to stimulate critical reflection in students.

In the first part of the course the complex case studies of the restoration will be illustrated, with the implications of historical and legislative character (restoration papers, international conventions, issues related to the organization of inventories and cataloguing etc.);  in the second part we will deal with all the technical aspects that lead to the more specifically design practices of restoration interventions; finally
in the third part the general criteria and current trends for design and implementation will be discussed of restoration through exemplary Italian and foreign cases.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The student will be evaluated:

1) on the ability to be able to express a critical independent judgment based on sound scientific bases on the choices to be made in the restoration;

2) the ability to learn and understand the notions of the discipline of the history of restoration in order to make them part of their cultural baggage;  

3) the ability to collect, synthesize and interpret scientifically the collected data relating to the study of a work of art;

4) the communicative ability to express their thoughts with appropriate terminology;

5 ) the ability to be able to graphically return a critical and direct reading of the work of art.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Supporting Activities

During the course, the teaching material will be distributed electronically.

In addition, bibliographical references will be provided on the specific topics discussed for further details.

The teaching material and the teacher's specific communications can be found, together with other support activities, within the

Moodle platform > blended.uniurb.it

Didactics, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Didactics

In order to refine the manual skills of the students, during the course, concrete graphic exercises will be performed, during which, the theoretical assumptions of the course can be verified. Students will be guided to the reading - for example, of the object analyzed in laboratory exercises – to the production of a opportune photographic documentation, the collection of all the sketches necessary to understand the state of facts but, above all, to the drawing up of direct relief graphs, produced in opportune scale, that allows the implementation of a model on which it will be easy to draw up the pre-established design objectives for solving the main restoration problems.

In order to pass the exam, it is mandatory for each student to prepare a term paper that will cover the critical historical analysis of a work of art, and the choice of the latter will be agreed with the teacher. The term paper must be delivered in digital format at least 10 days before the exam.

Attendance

Class attendance is appreciated.

Assessment

The exam is oral and individual and will verify the overall knowledge of the student on all the topics covered during the course, referring to the texts of a general nature indicated in the bibliography. For students who attend classes after an interview on the topics discussed in the lessons and in the basic bibliography, we will go to the discussion of the exercises carried out during the semester and to the illustration of a term paper covering the critical historical analysis of a work of art. The choice of the latter will be agreed with the teacher.

The evaluation criteria are: the level of mastery of the topics covered; the degree of articulation of the answers; the ability to know how to apply a method for studying a work of art; the ability to know how to express a critical judgment.

The oral test will take into account the judgment of the essay and will be evaluated in thirtieths.
