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.
