When the intervention combines the ancient and the new and restores the connections between the different souls of the location
A preservation and restoration project is, by its nature, an intervention of recovery and restitution. The primary intent is to project a building into the future, keeping the old and the new together. That’s not all. There is another, much higher goal in preservation and restoration: that of re-establishing the connection between the components of an area, to create a dialogue between landscape and building. Preservation and restoration bring order, re-establishing harmony between the built parts and nature.
Restoration, however, proves to be truly successful if it is also innovative, that is, when the historical demands are fully reconciled with the functional, economic and sustainability demands. The innovation is dictated first of all by the use of the materials, that must be sustainable and functional.
