Notes on Some Architectural Restorations to the Trinità dei Monti Complex in Rome. An Experience in General Supervision
The contribution explores the protection of architectural heritage using the example of the Trinità dei Monti complex in Rome. Recently concluded restoration works offer concrete evidence of how a relationship of collaboration and attention between a private client and the Soprintendenza can permit the realisation of interventions founded on a sophisticated balance among historic evidence, aesthetic evidence, prevention and protection. Specifically, the experiences regarding one of the most recognised and emblematic sites in the city of Rome reflect the importance of a critical approach at the margins of such themes as the colour of historical buildings, through which the act of restoration is called upon to fulfil the principal role of protecting cultural heritage: conserving the memory of a community by preserving its testimonials, combining the use and protection of monuments in operations inspired by minimum intervention, though capable of guaranteeing the lasting fruition of heritage, and its maintenance.
