IL LIBRO

Il volume raccoglie gli esiti delle attività condotte, nell’arco temporale di 25 anni, da docenti e studenti della Scuola di Specializzazione in Beni Architettonici e del Paesaggio dell’Università di Genova (già Scuola di Specializzazione in Restauro dei Monumenti). La Scuola offre una preparazione professionalizzante a coloro che prediligono, nel proprio ambito di interessi, la tutela e la conservazione attiva dei beni architettonici e paesistici e ai quali si richiede, sempre più, una preparazione scientifica e tecnica altamente qualificata. L’universo dei manufatti cui il restauro volge la sua attenzione è straordinariamente ricco e in continua espansione e sfugge a ogni pretesa di totale e autonomo dominio da parte di una specifica disciplina e, a maggior ragione, di singoli operatori tecnici. Il percorso formativo post-laurea magistrale della Scuola, caratterizzato da una ricchezza disciplinare e di approcci formativi, risponde così alla estrema complessità dell’intervento di conservazione, restauro, riuso e valorizzazione del patrimonio architettonico di interesse culturale, non esclusivamente monumentale.

The book collects the results of the activities carried out during 25 years by teachers and students of the “Scuola di Specializzazione in Beni Architettonici e del Paesaggio” of the University of Genoa (former “Scuola di Specializzazione in Restauro dei Monumenti”). The School offers professional training to those who prefer, in their own area of interest, the protection and active conservation of architectural and landscape heritage and to whom it is increasingly required a highly qualified scientific and technical preparation. The universe of artifacts to which the restoration turns its attention is extraordinarily rich and constantly expanding and escapes any claim of total and autonomous domination by a specific discipline and, even more so, by individual technical operators. The post-graduate training course of the School, characterized by a disciplinary wealth and training approaches, thus responds to the extreme complexity of the intervention of conservation, restoration, reuse and enhancement of the architectural heritage of cultural interest, not exclusively monumental.
