Restauro Archeologico

During the academic years 2000-2001, research groups from the universities of Florence, Naples and Turin established a research project of Archaeological Research (conservation and maintenance of ruined buildings) within the framework of research programmes of national interest, which in turn was a development of a previous project initiated in the years 1984-1987, when research groups from the universities of Bologna, Florence, Naples and Urbino had begun a research programme on the definition of “archaeological restoration, involving preliminary studies and research, as well as application in selected areas. The results promoted in the following years further research programmes which allowed for the gathering of a large corpus of archival and bibliographic material, and for the production of specific diagnostic surveys which, also fostered by field work, suggested new directions for research
