The course is the first didactic moment concerning architectural restoration within the course of studies of the Bachelor's Degree in Architecture. Therefore, the significance of the value of the restoration discipline in the architectural field will be clarified, focusing on the relationship between conservation theory and practice. The course aims to provide students with adequate theoretical-methodological means to acquire critical skills in the protection, conservation, and restoration of architectural heritage.

Among the expected results, the ability to read and correctly evaluate the main transformations and all restoration interventions present within an architectural, urban, archaeological body, etc. is expected; the formation of a renewed sensitivity towards heritage and historical buildings and awareness of the main transformations that have taken place in different eras. These results, and others, are aimed at creating useful knowledge in the cultural and operational sphere in order to identify the most suitable choices to preserve, enhance and manage the Architectural and Landscape Heritage.

The course includes three consequential modules. The first, ascribable to the history of restoration, concerns the period preceding the nineteenth-century codifications of the discipline. The second, more properly referred to the Theory of Restoration, analyzes the thought on the protection from the XVIII century up to the contemporary orientations regarding restoration and conservation. The third, also based on the laws in force and the theoretical and cultural aspects dictated by the most recent restoration papers, refers to the complex current debate. The course will, therefore, be aimed at acquiring the critical-methodological criteria for reading historical pre-existence aimed at pursuing the conservation and restoration of cultural heritage. The course, therefore, includes ex-cathedra lectures on specific topics of in-depth characterization of the restoration discipline. The whole course can be divided into three thematic areas: the history of restoration (equal to 3 formative credits) the theory of restoration (equal to 3 formative credits) and contemporary orientations (equal to 2 formative credits).
