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.

During the course will be illustrated the complex case studies of restoration, with the implications of historical, legislative and character (restoration papers, international conventions, issues related to the organization of inventories and cataloguing, etc..), will be discussed the technical aspects that initiate the more specifically design practices of restoration interventions and the general criteria and current trends for the design and implementation of restoration through exemplary Italian and foreign cases.
