The Tempietto Longobardo of Cividale: the transformation “tale” as a contribution for its “care”
The Tempietto Longobardo of Cividale represents an important expression of the longobard architecture and art in Italy. The recognizing path as a sign of its spatial, historical and temporal reality is the focus of this essay. A tale useful both to describe the “transformation” starting from the affirmation of a modern conception of restoration, and also to contribute to its “care”. The long tradition of the restoration culture developed a diachronic vision of the conservation problems, highlighting the importance of the “memory of the construction” for preventive purposes and underlining the need for historical knowledge that is “useful” to this aim. To this purpose the documentation of the architectural and decorative asset of the Tempietto is useful to identify the addition and removal actions referable to the different restoration interventions that have marked the monument above all in the 19th and 20th century, with particular attention to the invisible interventions, linked to the structural components, from the curbs to the different principal and tie-rods.
