The introductory seminar (mandatory for the first-year students of the LM MAP course) aims to lead students to a shared reflection on the architectural and urban heritage both widespread and concentrated, ancient and modern. The ultimate goal is its understanding aimed at conservation, enhancement, management, promotion. In this perspective, the Seminar is aimed at forming a mature and conscious understanding of the current and past debate on the issue of cultural heritage, of the difference between active and passive heritage protection, and of the consequent management aimed at the enhancement of heritage. The seminar addresses these issues by proposing on the one hand the reading and discussion of a reference bibliography proposed by the professors, on the other hand, the critical analysis of a set of experiences useful to redefine the field of action at the different scales.

Students in this seminar will acquire knowledge concerning in particular: - ability to know how to orient in specialist historiography on issues related to heritage protection; - ability to reach an articulated understanding of the relationship among contemporary society, memory, heritage; - ability to know how to design administrative law tools useful for agreeing collaborations among active citizens, profit private subjects, individual volunteers, social entrepreneurs, formal and informal associations, and local public managers with political and technical responsibilities; - to understand the complex relationship among urban growth (linked to constantly changing needs), the architectural and urban heritage, and the memory of places. Furthermore, students will acquire critical skills including: - elaborate a reasoned critical bibliography; - orient themselves in the contemporary debate and in the legislature on the subject; - publicly present their critical thinking; - discuss among peers on the basis of an awareness gained on a scientific basis. Such knowledge and skills will be acquired during the seminar through different types of activities that will develop different kinds of skills: ex-cathedra lessons in a limited number and to be considered as methodological orientation, individual study, reading of texts belonging to a recommended and possibly implementable bibliography, specific research exercises, public presentation of the research and study activities carried out individually, seminar discussions, etc. Students will develop critical and interpretative skills on issues related to heritage, active protection, management, legislation in this regard.

The knowledge of the history of modern and contemporary architecture is considered a fundamental prerequisite along with the basis of the theory of restoration. These disciplines are taught in the academic three-year basic cycle. Preconditions about urban sociology and administrative law are not required.

- The concept of active protection - The concept of cultural heritage - The historical knowledge of the good for the active protection - For a correct scientific divulgation The contribution of the history of architecture and heritage (20 hours) within the seminar aims to explore the concepts behind the policy of cultural heritage through a series of shared readings, seminar discussions, a short written exercise rooted by each student.
The workshop focuses on the notion of Cultural Heritage, the notion of active protection, the spatial-temporal dimension of heritage, its connections with the human and natural ecosystem, the concepts of place, and a sustainable development. Cultural Heritage is a multifaceted notion who includes different readings and needs. It also requires various and integrated expertise. The workshop, thus, aims to provide some theoretical and analytical knowledge and tools on the heritage matter under the historical, sociological and legal main perspectives with a specific focus on relatoinshipis between cultural heritage and social innovation. In this aiim, theoretical and metholological hetitage knowledge will be strngly connected to the active role of communities and individuals in heritage preservation. For this purpose, the workshop deal with Cultural Heritage understandings by leading students to a shared reflection on the past, the collective memories, our shared heritage and its uses and impacts on the current society. It will especially consider different kinds of heritage especially related to the built environment, cities and territories developments, such as architectural, urban, rural heritage and cultural landscapes. Both tangible and intangible heritage will be included. shared administration and horizontal subsidiarity. In particular, topics covered will concern complex concepts such as territory, space and place, local development, participative and contributive democracy, community action and cultural heritage, common goods, shared administration and horizontal subsidiarity. The aim is the understanding of a territorial context starting from its observation and the voice of public and private subjects, associations and individuals. Legislation of Cultural Heritage will be included to offer future professionals of the territory and the environment a systematic basis of reference for orientation within the legal and institutional framework of the government of the territory and, in particular, the legislation of cultural heritage and landscape.

The seminar is organized into modules, each of which is intended to provide specific skills and to introduce specific issues: bibliographic research, discussion of existing literature, are the basis of each reflection. Each module will be subject to specific forms of review and will contribute to the formation of the overall evaluation. On the occasion of the first lesson, a detailed calendar of reminders will be given, where the teacher will indicate with precision the deadlines and the moments of intermediate evaluation. Exercises will be developed in small groups and individually.
The workshop include three modules that will provide parallel teachings and activities on historical, urban sociological and legal perpective. The historical path (2 credits module) aims to build knowledge on Cultural and Natural Heritage and other heritage types, their understandings and practices within a spatio-temporal context. It will link some main themes of societal challenges to heritage understandings to create the basis for a shared understandings of heritage abc in a critical and historical dimension. The past has been continously constituted in the present in many ways, and we’ll explore some of them. For this purpose we’ll focus on building a glossary of cultural and natural heritage. We’ll shape how we can shape sustainable heritage understanings. Some lessons and basic bibliography will be provided as a starting point. The class will co-create a contribution to this knowledge. The urban sociology path (2 credits module) has the vocational goal to learn how to set up a collaborative process by which local actors could be able to take care of tangible and intangible cultural heritage. Social innovation is primarily intended as an innovation of the administrative law in support of local communities active to take care of cultural heritage in the perspective of the general interest. The legilsational path aim to present and comment on the main legal institutions for the protection and enhancement of cultural heritage and landscape that are of educational and operational interest for students of Architecture courses, in the light of the complex institutional dynamics of relations in this field among State, Regions,local authorities on one side and formal and informal groups of active citizenship on the other side.

Modalità di esame: Prova orale obbligatoria; Elaborato grafico individuale;
Exam: Compulsory oral exam; Individual graphic design project;
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.
Exam: Compulsory oral exam; Individual graphic design project;
Oral test: 50% of the evaluation is based on the outcome of the oral test (one question on the seminar program and the reference bibliography). 50% of the evaluation is based on the exercise. Expected duration of the final interview: 15 minutes. The exercise assigned at the beginning of the course foresees a first part to be tackled in small groups (max three people) and, subsequently, conducted independently. There are intermediate deadlines that must be met: on these occasions the exercises in progress will be corrected by the teacher and discussed in a public seminar. Contributing to the final judgment is the evaluation of attendance at lectures, seminars and other laboratory activities that are considered necessary conditions for the successful development of the planned activities. Even if part of the seminar activity may be carried out in groups, the final evaluation is individual and considers also revisions and discussions in itinere, intermediate evaluations, and individual participation during the whole duration of the seminar. The final interview and the evaluation of the exercise are aimed at verifying the acquired skills: knowledge of the most specific literature related to the themes of heritage protection, critical skills, ability to write a short scientific essay, dialectical ability of exposition of a problem related to the program carried out in the classroom. Honors will be awarded to the students who will be able to integrate the three different parts of the course.
In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
