Restauro Archeologico <p><strong>Restauro Archeologico</strong>&nbsp;(<strong>RA</strong>­) è un periodico scientifico internazionale, semestrale, pubblicato in stampa e modalità Open Access.<br><strong>RA&nbsp;</strong>pubblica articoli sottoposti a peer review – in italiano, inglese, spagnolo, francese e tedesco – sulla&nbsp;<em>conoscenza, conservazione e valorizzazione del patrimonio architettonico d’interesse archeologico e di quello allo stato di rudere</em>&nbsp;e<em>&nbsp;</em>si pone l’obiettivo di focalizzare l’attenzione sulle metodologie di studio e d’intervento su manufatti architettonici riferibili a contesti archeologici o ad essi connessi (pluristratificazioni).<br>Il restauro archeologico può comprendere, per modalità d’intervento e finalità di valorizzazione, oltre ai manufatti riferibili all’antichità, anche tutti i manufatti che, per provenienza, condizioni di utilizzo e stato di manutenzione sono ridotti a rudere; ad esempio, sugli edifici in disuso, o in rovina di epoca moderna, si potrà intervenire con procedure simili a quelle utilizzate per le testimonianze di epoca antica, con la principale finalità di conservarne la memoria, come nel caso dell’archeologia industriale. La rivista ambisce, quindi, a costituire una finestra privilegiata di osservazione dei diversi approcci conservativi in funzione dei molteplici contesti geopolitici e culturali. In quest’ottica, ampio spazio è dato agli aspetti di multidisciplinarietà insiti nella pratica del restauro, con un’attenzione particolare ai progressi metodologici e tecnici della disciplina.</p> en-US Restauro Archeologico 1724-9686 <p>Authors retain the copyright and grant the journal right of first publication with the work simultaneously licensed under a <strong>Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International Public License (<a href="">CC-BY-4.0</a>)</strong>&nbsp;that allows others to share the work with an acknowledgment of the work's authorship and initial publication.</p> <p><a href="" rel="license"><img src="" alt="Creative Commons License"></a><br>This work is licensed under a <a href="" rel="license">Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License</a></p> On the SeVAMH survey protocol for safety and safeguard of artistic assets. Overview and validation at the Monumental complex of Santa Chiara in Naples. <p>The availability of data concerning cultural heritage is a key condition for the preservation and enhancement of valuable assets, particularly when they are exposed to relevant hazards, and needs to be improved when safety evaluation, like those associated with the Artistic Limit State (ALS) of heritage structures and assets, are required. This task can be supported by Information and Communication Technology (ICT) that can provide easy-to-manage and efficient tools capable to properly describe the current conditions of cultural heritage components in a comprehensive way. Hierarchical and structured information can be collected and managed in the form of databases made of heterogeneous data, including pictures and sketches. In such a context, one of the main aspects of the process is the correlation between movable and immovable assets and their potential interactions under exceptional actions.</p> Adriana Marra Giovanni Fabbrocino Copyright (c) 2021 Adriana Marra, Giovanni Fabbrocino 2021-07-29 2021-07-29 28 2 4 17 10.13128/rar-8683 Documentation strategies for a non-invasive structural and decay analysis of medieval civil towers: an application on the Clock Tower in Pavia <p>The civil towers in Pavia are a distinctive element of the city’s architectural heritage, dating back to the Medieval Age as a statement of the lordship’s power and wealth. They constitute singularities in the urban landscape, with out-of-scale vertical development, whether in the original morphology or altered by subsequent actions. Furthermore, they are embedded in a dense urban fabric and therefore they are naturally associated with local risks for the safety of the urban setting and of its users. These peculiarities require accurate and complex documentation practices, and they foster monitoring and morpho-material mapping as preliminary actions to their conservation. The knowledge analysis that has been developed on the case study of the Clock Tower aims to systematize a documentation strategy for delivering an accurate and updated conservation status of the wall surfaces. Digital survey outputs are then developed as diagnosis tools to support intervention procedures, by highlighting deformations and deteriorations that could cause structural instability.</p> Sandro Parrinello Raffaella De Marco Alessia Miceli Copyright (c) 2021 Sandro Parrinello, Raffaella De Marco, Alessia Miceli 2021-07-29 2021-07-29 28 2 18 43 10.13128/rar-9518 Le mura urbiche fiorentine dal rilievo al virtual heritage nel progetto FiMU <p>The ancient city walls of Florence are today an important as well as little known and valued architectural heritage of the town. The city walls that we see today are the overlapping of traces and circuits that have formed over the centuries the main signal of the Forma Urbis, till the break of the nineteenth century, when the entire north branch of the river was demolished and replaced by drive boulevards, flanked by the city gates, which were left with the monumental urban landmark function. This paper presents the contribution of the architecture’s survey and the representation in multidimensional visual languages of the urban complex in the framework of the project Firenze Mura- FiMU. In this project the virtual heritage could contribute to the recovery of the symbolic dimension of the Florentine walls to promoting more sustainable forms of enhancement also useful for mitigating the effects of overtourism on the city.</p> Paola Puma Copyright (c) 2021 Paola Puma 2021-07-29 2021-07-29 28 2 44 65 10.13128/rar-10886 Casertavecchia: dal progetto di restauro urbano di Roberto Pane ed Ezio De Felice al frammentario restauro del castello medievale <p>In 1954 the architects Roberto Pane and Ezio De Felice were commissioned by the Caserta Provincial Tourist Board to draw up the restoration project of the medieval village of Casertavecchia. After some modifications were made, in 1961 the project was financed by the Cassa per il Mezzogiorno. The plan was not limited to the restoration of the architectural emergencies, such as the cathedral of San Michele Arcangelo, but it involved the recovery of the medieval building fabric and the disused castle. Unfortunately, the intervention was only partially achieved due to lack of economic resources and so it has been deprived of its organicity. At the time of the plan of Pane and De Felice, the castle was not restored because it was covered with vegetation and debris. Only from the mid-1980s to the present day, many structures of the castle have been restored but still a destination has not been established for the covered hall and for the external areas of the building. Taken together, the urban renewal of the medieval village and the architectural restoration of the castle cannot be considered satisfactory and it is hoped that in the near future new interventions will be carried out with a scientific method.</p> Riccardo Serraglio Copyright (c) 2021 Riccardo Serraglio 2021-07-29 2021-07-29 28 2 66 87 10.13128/rar-10793 Ostia Antica e le province africane: contatti, scambi, influenze ed eredità. Problematiche di studio e prospettive di valorizzazione <p>The essay is part of the studies regarding Ostia Antica, focused on its relations with African provinces – today in Tunisia – characterized by diversified influences, legacies, and cultural bonds. In Ostia, the intertwining of interests and cultures is also testified by various cults and religions coming from all over the Mediterranean Sea. The present study is aimed at highlighting Piazzale delle Corporazioni (Guild square) urban role: it is a structure built behind the theater scene, representing in ancient times a venue for a community including many different civilizations of foreign merchants, associated on the base of common ethnic or birthplace roots, to find their community trade. It was a meeting place where some North African and Tunisian communities established depots and warehouses to represent main shipping and trading companies from all over the Mediterranean Sea and African provinces: among these, the African naviculari, as Alexandria, Sabratha, and Carthage associations.</p> Maria Grazia Turco Sonia Gallico Copyright (c) 2021 Maria Grazia Turco, Sonia Gallico 2021-07-29 2021-07-29 28 2 88 105 10.13128/rar-9905 Stratigrafie, paesaggi, soundscapes. Riflessioni su restauro archeologico, conoscenza e accessibilità a margine del teatro ellenistico-romano di Velia <p>The paper discusses a series of issues linked to the restauration and maintenance of archaeological structures consisting partly or entirely of earth layers and stratigraphic sections. Taking recent maintenance work on the theatre of the ancient Greek colony of Velia, southern Italy, as a starting point, the author explores the role of public accessibility for the conservation and perception of archaeological remains and monuments. With regard to ancient theatres, the multisensorial perception of archaeological structures and spaces is highlighted, particularly with regard to acoustics. The paper concludes by advocating an enlarged and inclusive conceptualization of monuments and landscapes in the field of archaeological restauration and conservation that pays attention to the visual, acoustic, and kinetic experience of archaeological sites.</p> Gabriel Zuchtriegel Copyright (c) 2021 Gabriel Zuchtriegel 2021-07-29 2021-07-29 28 2 106 121 10.13128/rar-10722
