The Lab of the Professional Master's
degree in Architectonical
Restoration represents the element
of continuity accompanying the didactics'
development and entirely
dedicated to the application of a
study case. In 2011 and 2012, the
Torre dei Conti - massive medieval
building now disused and partially
compromised - has been chosen as
it. It presents itself as a joint between
the modern Via Cavour and
the visible ruins of Nerva's forum.
The Lab's aim is to teach how a restoration project's redaction develops
with available dates and in a
given time. In this case, the Municipal
Superintendence of Rome allowed
access and made the necessary
material within a fruitful tenyear
cooperation to the Professional
Master's degree in Architectonical
Restoration of RomaTre University.
The results are shown in the tables
illustrating the article; they provide
documentary evidence of the subjects
discussed in the Lab: restoration
of the building at its current
conditions; re-creation of the original
image through partial or entire
reconstruction of its collapsed
parts; restoration of the Tower's
current urban context.
