Learning outcomes
The course aims to train Designer Restorer able to know and understand an architectural and environmental cultural object in its historical evolutive aspects, in its structural components and materials, in its intrinsic environmental and cultural values in order to be able to operate with awareness and competence in restoration project / conservation of historical artefact artistic updated according to the principles of the theory and technology, in order for a proper recovery, protection and future maintenance. The course and its labs are designed in coordination with Area of the History of Architecture; Area Imaging and Surveying; Area Technology of Building Elements; Area Technical Architecture; Area of Structural Engineering, Area of Architecture and Architectural Composition.
In order to address advanced design themes, even of considerable complexity, through the application of knowledge gained, students will thrash out all the aspects of the architectural and environmental cultural object which constitute the essential basis of any proper restoration and conservation project: the documentary history, the geometric survey, documentation of possible previous restoration, diagnostic analysis, etc. They will have to be critically analyzed and evaluated in their specific and applicative values for the project, in the field of the development of operational techniques and of applicable administrative regulations.
The course deals with tutorials, analysis and design studies to be carried out in working groups, on the theme of restoration / preservation of buildings of historical and environmental complexes undergo bond of Bodies of protection, in order to create and stimulate the design ability of the students regarding the topics covered.

“Restoration” means to be engaged in the guardianship of an historical monument and to hand it on to the future as it is, with his total heritage of historical marks, by making it easy to be understood to our posterity in every part, giving readability to his transformations during the times. Likewise we are obliged to set up all technical actions to preserve his structural and surfaces integrity during the times to come. As well restoration is a “critical action”, which is the more effective the more we deeply know his history (age, building documents, surveys, materials analysis, etc.). Since this informations are basic to restore the past, they will be analyzed and carefully handled in our restoration project, with realistic consciousness of up-to-date technical rules and laws. On-the-spot investigations, technical specimens and papers, as well as specific lectures by professional advisers will help us to carry out our academic projects.

Development of the examination
Learning level will be with checked through an assiduous control of the cultural and technical growiChecking on the technical and cultural knowledge acquired by the student on treated themes during lessons and laboratorieng up by the student

Checking on the technical and cultural knowledge acquired by the student on treated themes during lessons and laboratorie

The student must testify in detail his conscious handling and grasp in restoration project drawings and architectural surveys on a selected architectural monument .

Maximum evaluation wil be attributed to a good handling of project techniques, drawings and mature consciousness of highlights and criteria concerning a restoration design.
