Insediamenti fortificati nella Marsica. Il Castellum Sancti Angeli a Carsoli
In: Quaderni dell'Istituto di Storia dell'Architettura: 71, 2019
The research is carried out on the historic centre of Carsoli (AQ) and in particular on the Castellum Sancti Angeli, a fortress in defence of the Marsican Region. The old town portrays an enriched urban structure, resulting in spiritual and residential buildings as well as of defence. The restoration project aims at designing and planning the preservation of the “remaining structures” by arresting the decay of the existing facilities and securing safety management. The highly historic and abandoned context does not allow any room for hypothetical reconstruction of the missing parts or inserts of new manufactured products, however, it invites to discover areas of the surrounding landscapes through routes, crossings and breaks in green equipped areas leading and suggesting the visitor to see the possibly unseen.
