Architecture and restoration for the Italian landscapes
The peculiarity and beauty of the Italian architectural and landscape heritage lie in the diversity of places and building traditions. Also in the light of Giovanni Carbonara’s tought, the text recalls the survival modes of this heritage between ontological and perceptive horizon and reiterates the importance of diversifying restoration interventions on the basis of the many different vocations expressed by places, architectures and landscapes. The study of the different territorial structures and the analysis of their ability to resist to changes - or to support them – are the central nucleus of restoration interventions in their philological or more freely interpretative forms. This kind of study and its methodological repercussions in the restoration project are the responsibility of the “heritage architect”; his or her specific skills can be enhanced through higher university education, if properly reorganized in a territorial, organic and contextual vision.
