Architectural restoration between project and construction site. Some reflections
In recent decades applied research in the field of architectural restoration has been enriched with many contributions, the results of which, however, have not particularly affected the average quality of operational practice, as evidence of a gap between disciplinary evolution and the same praxis. One of the factors that has contributed to this disparity is to be found in a misapplication of the current legislation governing public procurement relating to architectural cultural heritage. Proposing reflections on these aspects is a choice not without pitfalls for many reasons, but it would be a serious error not to highlight the important role that the application of the legal discipline of contracts has in encouraging or not the application of a correct methodology in practice. And this, especially in relation to two issues that are addressed in this contribution: that of the planning and execution of preliminary exploratory analyses of the project and that of the planning of the execution of the planned interventions on site.
