Abstract

Most of our historic centers have an indisputable charm and are very rich of history, culture, lost know-how of the ancient builders: we can read all this on these stratified walls, arches and towers. This applies also to many minor and small buildings that spread over our territory, from very different historical periods. Most of these are not even protected by an obligation/constraint, obviously. This lack of legal protection exposes them to greater risks; for this reason it is not even possible to adopt the standard approach to restoration. However, this enormous heritage must be preserved and saved from loss. This article describes a new strategy for conservation, a renewed approach. The focus is on prevention, on involvement of users and owners. In such a way, our discipline will have to draw also on experiences already tested in other fields. Starting from some real cases, it investigates new possibilities, experimenting new tools to preserve this “minor buildings” heritage and transmit it to the future, knowing that its importance is equal to that of the most famous, multi-protected heritage.
