Course's description

 

At the presidency of the Libera Università delle Arti in Bologna, the University Course “Specialisation in Historical Analyses, Survey of Architectural Heritage, Architectural Restoration” has been organised and activated.
The course is designed like a traditional program with multiple academic training. The teaching structure consists of an IRT (integrated research team) type program.
Administrative offices of the University Course is L.UN.A., in via D’Azeglio 33, Bologna; classrooms and lessons will also take place in via D’Azeglio 33.
Course Director is Prof. Dario Apollonio;
Scientific Director is Prof. Bruno Adorni and Sergio Bettini
Coordination: Prof. Silvana Sermisoni
The course program will introduce participants to knowledge of advanced processes of critical historical analyses, architectural survey and restoration.
Students and young professionals who participate will be offered the opportunity to enter an intensive “research study” that will encourage critical thinking in the sphere of complex contemporary themes of analyses and a proposal of preservation and valorisation of architectural heritage. The program has been devised as a “framework”, an articulated structure, in which academic, professional, institutional questions and those concerning cultural heritage policy will be explored.

The course program aims to:

1. Treat a limited catalogue of historical themes relating to properties and historical periods within the area of study, Emilia Romagna. The historical periods are the 1400s and early 1500s. Objects under examination will be selected from civil and religious buildings of particular historical and micro-historical interest, possible areas of intervention of conservational restoration and functional redefinition.

2. Activate a campaign of architectural surveys with the help of traditional techniques and new technologies such as laser scanning. The architectural surveys will be published electronically on a relational online database containing a variety of in-depth information.

3. Devise projects of conservational restoration and economy plans for the client, for a forecast of rational and economically sustainable reuse of the properties examined.

Contents and objectives

One lecture (3 hours) and one workshop (6 hours) weekly, for a total of 9 hours, over a period of five months.
Simultaneously a virtual page will be generated where enrolments will e collected and this will be used as another window for communication of reflection in real time linked to project development, to introduce and expand lectures, to update students on topics that would otherwise be impossible to propose.
The website will also contain a database of surveys and projects proposed by the work group.
TIMETABLE: from 2pm to 5pm for lectures and from 3pm to 9pm for workshops.
At other times technical disciplines and optional in-depth analyses will be made available to participants aimed at integrating further competences based on personal needs.
Examples: advanced cad, three-dimensional blow moulds, 3d printing and laser cutting (with technologies available in L.UN.A. laboratories), advanced information technology for robotic and management of web orientated information, and more).
Once or twice a month chosen guests will give lectures on the aforementioned subjects (historians, restorers, businesses which supply technology and materials, public administrators). These might be held at any location and at any time.
