From the postgraduate education to the field experience: letter to the students at specialization school in
Restoration of Monuments
This contribution aims to propose a reflection on the role of postgraduate education and on the step from the specialization school in Restoration of Monuments to the professional world. This is a moment of disillusion but also awareness of the method and tools learnt along the path undertaken.
Considerations about the development of a historic-critical approach, the transposition of issues theoretical framework in the practical reality of the construction-site and the management of its various topics, in 2012, led the author to the drafting of Lettera agli Specializzandi, a reminder for the students at the specialization school. Prof. Giovanni Carbonara handed them the letter himself. The purpose of the letter is to stimulate the students in pursuing the path chosen, despite the difficulties that the restoration field and the present critical moment force them to deal with, aware of the privilege but also of the responsibilities in interacting with historical buildings.
