Organized the First (1983) and the Second (1989) National Conferences on the Restoration of Wooden Structures.



Florence, 2005, February

Buildings and Structures in Wood are found all over the world and include both outstanding works as well as simple constructions of “vernacular architecture”. Besides it is interesting to note the increasingly frequent reference, in contemporary architecture, to the tree and to the forest as the primordial shelter of the man.

The continuous appraisal of interesting carpentries existing in the world in an extremely large variety, the generally poor condition in which they are usually to be found, the diffused idea that “new” materials like reinforced concrete, steel, titanium … are better and in general more reliable than wood, the alien techniques often used to “repair” them, the daily destruction of valuable specimens are a few of the reasons which require a full debate on the matter.

Some more specific subjects to debate are the increasing awareness that load bearing structures are essential components of Monuments and a significant part of our Heritage, and therefore embody special values like creativity, inventiveness and aesthetics as well as technological significance. On the other hand a large number of very ancient wood Structures perform very honourably.

Repair Principles are similar in the different Countries but the practice of replacement is still very diffused especially where wood and wood craftsmanship are cheaply and easily available.

Today newest technologies and materials like Wood Composites and Fibre Composites are extensively used for the repair of ancient structures but all the same the combined behaviour of wood and these composites is not completely understood.

After a few international Meetings on general topics such as the conservation of Load Bearing Wooden Structures, the Mexico City Document on Historic Wooden Structures, the Recommendations elaborated by the ICOMOS Committee ISCARSAH (International Scientific Committee for Analysis and Restoration of Structures of Architectural Heritage), it appears to be time to call all specialists to share their reflections and experiences in order to enable the widest possible discussion.

With reference to the main subject of Wooden Historic Structures, the principal themes of the present Event are: Building Technology, Specimen Documentation, Degradation, Security Evaluation, Theory and Principles of Conservation, Propping, Repair Techniques, Calculations, Dimensioning of the Consolidation Devices and others.

Význam archeomineralógie pri poznávaní kultúrneho dedičstva a jej úloha…

Ľudstvo si stále viac uvedomuje nenahraditeľné miesto kultúrneho dedičstva medzi najcennejšími hodnotami civilizácie. Jeho významnou súčasťou sú aj stavebné a výtvarné pamiatky, remeselné a umelecké artefakty. Poznanie ich pôvodu a predpokladov možnosti ich zachovania pre budúce generácie, predstavujú celý rad komplikovaných problémov. Pri riešení týchto otázok môžu nezastupiteľným spôsobom pomôcť aj petrológia, geofyzika, geochémia, mineralógia a ďalšie vedné odbory.
