Design and restoration studio:
The course, which includes within it the Modules Representation of the project and Ancient Topography, intends to introduce students to the conservation project of a historic building as an act of design synthesis of historical data, material, linguistic, technological and use. Each conservation work it requires a complete knowledge of the historical architecture as an area, subject, symbol, problems in the light of any possible remedies today that the technique allows.
There is thus a link between theory and practice, and this course aims to provide students with the theoretical tools for a choice (critical) of formal solutions and techniques.
Ancient topography II:
The course aims to achieve a framework as clear as possible of the characters of a historical context, given the difculty of finding someone who is not. But also try to substantiate not so much the answers, as the questions that the project should ask to history, to clarify whether they can be limited to individual objects or they have to investigate the historical "processes" who have invested, over time, territories, cities , landscapes and, even more, their intersections, vertical and horizontal. Finally: to overcome the well-established view that a historical context is a container of "old" objects particularly evident and, possibly, physically well preserved.
