Re-thinking the image: the conservation of architecture as reintegration and ‘re-constructiveness’
Interpreting, recuperating, re-integrating the lost image: these are just some words which connotate the debate on restoration and also motivate the restoration choices. Since the early twentieth century, the importance of the image and its consubstantiality for restoration have acquired various aspects over time, as the perception sphere and the subsequent association of images. This has involved not only the issues about the link between the subject and object but also it has been the main factor for the intervention affecting the figurativeness of the work of art. The concept of image and its phenomenological implications has been developed in the field of restoration: C. Brandi addressed through L’Immagine review the aesthetic contemplation of a real physical object. Following the G. Carbonara’s La reintegrazione dell’immagine the paper tries to focus on the relationship between restoration and conservation which could be founded on different vision of image and also of imaginary.
