Educational goals

HISTORY OF ARCHITECTURE - The aim is to train in the use and methods of historical-architectural scientific research, in relation to the various systems currently in use in the international community. The history of architectural organisms, examined in their diachronic development, in fact also interferes with questions of the historical and historical-artistic disciplines in general, the history of criticism and science, the history of construction techniques and aesthetics. The possible fields of study are, among the most significant, the complex methods of acquisition, treatment and dissemination of information on existing architecture, the analysis of archival sources, the history of architectural historiography, the history of transformations of single buildings or of groups of them, the history of cities, territories and landscapes, the many possible relationships between the history of architecture and restoration, the more strictly figurative issues also linked to architectural orders. REPRESENTATION - The aim is to train scientific research in the field of descriptive geometry, digital graphics, architectural drawing, surveying, documentation and critical reading of the architectural heritage, urban space and landscape. The aim is to train a PhD able to autonomously monitor and develop original activities on different topics, with repercussions also on an international level in universities, productive and professional sectors, in particular of the creative cultural industry. To this end, training activities are organized that cover very articulated fields of interest, including, as examples, the acquisition, processing and dissemination of data aimed at representing information on architecture, urban space and the landscape, their integration and management also aimed at communication and valorisation of the latter at various scales. RESTORATION - The aim is to train in the deepening and use of scientific research methods aimed at understanding the relationship between theories and practice of conservation of existing architectural organisms. The research projects are aimed at issues of a theoretical nature, at urban scale or conservation and restoration issues involving the protection of territorial and landscape testimonies and contexts. Among the fields of study we must at least mention, among the most significant, the knowledge of current trends in the theory and practice of restoration, the history of the historiography of architectural, structural and urban restoration, issues relating to technological systems, the contributions of chemistry and of physics in the discipline, the restoration of contemporary architecture and archaeological assets, museography, the integration of the conservation project with the architectural project in various ways.
