AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

To be effective, heritage management must not only intervene correctly and appropriately on the individual architecture or landscape but place it adequately in a system of multi-scale relations. Therefore, those who tackle the study and restoration of an element of the heritage will have to question about its historical relationships with the context and the prospects for its reintegration in the process of transformation and development of the city and the territory.

This teaching deals with the aspects of the knowledge and restoration / management project that concern the relationship between heritage and its context.

At the end of the teaching, the learner will have acquired the ability to:

• set up and carry out a research program aimed at investigating and understanding the relationships of the property under study (building or complex of buildings) with the urban and territorial context,

• define and represent historical and functional phases of these relationships,

• identify reasons and define guidelines for the recovery of the property in relation to the urban and territorial context,

• organize and explain the research carried out.

 

TEACHING METHODS

The teaching unit consists of:

• ex cathedra lessons, dealing with general issues and problems related to the property chosen as the year case study;

• workshop activities in which the teacher and the learners will jointly define a research program on the case study and discuss its developments;

• inspections dedicated to the critical observation of the urban context of the case study and the visit of urban environments, to consider the results of recovery plans and interventions and to carry out collective reading exercises of the historic buildings and the urban fabric.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam is oral and is part of the exam which includes all the teachings of the first year of course.

The learners will illustrate to the School professors the results of the work done in the atelier by means of a PPoint presentation which will be the basis for in-depth analysis and discussion. The evaluation of the work and the way it is presented will contribute to define the overall evaluation of the first year of course.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The evaluation concerns the ability:

• to independently set up and carry out research on the relationship between a property and the urban and territorial context in which it is located,

• to produce useful results in terms of knowledge of the property and its context,

• to propose criteria and objectives for a recovery intervention that takes into account the conditions of the context and possibly brings about improvements,

• to present the research carried out and the intervention proposals clearly and with methodological rigor.
