The Representation for the Restoration project: operational practices and methodologies for the Study
and Conservation of Historical Architecture
The conservation of architectural heritage requires an interdisciplinary approach, according to which each object is synergistically studied by scholars that belong to different sectors. Professionals who together contribute to the achievement of the shared goal of safeguarding. In particular, for the assessment of the state of conservation of a cultural asset, it is necessary to acquire and convey in a single integrated and accessible system, a considerable amount of data obtained by various techniques and tools. As Giovanni Carbonara states, the common denominator needs to be the greatest attention to the reality of the monument: only, in fact, by considering the investigated good in all its concreteness, it would be possible to plan and implement conscientious interventions. In this framework, a decisive role is played by drawing which, by proceeding from the survey to the graphic representation, is both cognitive tool and common language for interdisciplinary cooperation. This essay intends to highlight the essential link existing between architectural representation and restoration project.
