De la teoría a la práctica: la aplicación en México de los conceptos de la escuela de Giovanni Carbonara
From theory to practice: the application in Mexico of the concepts of Giovanni Carbonara’s school
This paper aims to show the international influence of Prof. Giovanni Carbonara; through three interventions made by the author in emblematic monuments in the State of Puebla, Mexico, the application of the techniques learned at the “Scuola di Specializzazione in Restauro dei Monumenti” is exemplified.
The three works in question are the Casa de Alfeñique, the Ex-Franciscan Convent of Tepeaca, and the Ex-Franciscan Convent of Zacatlán. The range of solutions applied includes the restitution of missing flattened surfaces, the liberation and consolidation of sculptural elements made of mortar, the restoration of mural painting, the treatment of flattened surfaces with high technology products, and the reinforcement of large wooden roofs.
