Building Process and Regola D’arte: A Customized Approach to the Restoration of Historic Masonry

Paolo Vitti, University of Notre Dame

September 25, 2019 · 4:30 pm · 222 Bowen

Department of Art & Archaeology; Heritage Structures Lab

The lecture will focus on the concepts of regola dell’arte (which may be translated as “conformance to best practices”) and minimal intervention. Each construction is the result of a process that applies the regola dell’arte to the actual building. This process depends on many factors, including the historic context, materials, financial constraints, and workmanship.
