The aim of the course is to train students in the elaboration and management of conservation plans and programs related to artefacts of historical and artistic interest, monumental complexes, areas of landscape and environmental value.
The course is divided into ex cathedra lessons and exercises. The lessons support exercises on a specific project theme, and relate to contents of restoration theory and technique applied to the conservation of the landscape and the built environment.
- the conservation project of the landscape and built environment;
- historical research, survey and conservation;
- the degradation of structures and materials: causes and processes;
- the restoration of materials, surfaces and construction elements;
The exercises follow a path that gradually reaches the design phase from the cognitive phase. The stages of this path can be summarized as follows: historical-critical investigation, survey, examination of materials and construction techniques, analysis of degradation, proposal for conservation and restoration.
The works, duly endorsed by the teacher, will be delivered according to agreed deadlines and consequently assessed as progress status of the work as a whole; must be completed by the end of the course and will be an integral part of the final exam. The tables, numbered progressively, will be in the format and number suggested by the teacher, and will include, among other indications -university, faculty, laboratory, teacher, academic year, study theme, topic of the single table- the names of the authors for extended.
The verification of the results achieved by the students will be partly conducted during the course and partly at the end of this through the final exam. The exam will be based on the discussion of the topics covered in class and on the topic of the exercise, with particular regard to the project results obtained.
