Abstract

The workshop that took place in Bucharest, on October 2011, was distinguished by an interesting temporal shift (from ancient to more recent history) and by a shift in scale: from the single object or sum of buildings to the integrated vision of them in a whole urban context. This change made them more sensitive to, and more capable of, multiple complex meanings and values. This choice allowed the participants, from various European countries, each with their own cultural heritage (and not exclusively based on the specific disciplines of conservation and restoration), to come together to design a large fresco with the crucial help of local professors. This fresco combines the particulars of some clearly defined themes (making reference to cultural value, identity and conservation of material) as well as some more blurry issues. This fresco has the advantage of being able to present itself as an articulated story; expressing reflections, proposals, actions and wide-ranging programmes that take note (where it was possible to develop such ideas in such a short period of time) of the complexity of the themes, problems and actors involved. The eassay aims to develop some reflections on relationship between sustainability and architectural heritage, innovation and conservation.
