Chapter
Giuseppe Vaccaro in his original handbook “Schemi distributivi di Architettura” dating back to the mid thirties provides a key to solving the compositional project of various types of buildings. At the same time, as writing this text, he applied those principles to the School of Engineering in Bologna, built between 1933 and 1935. This paper will e...

The sixteenth-century Fountain of Neptune is one of Bologna’s most renowned landmarks. During the recent restoration activities of the monumental sculpture group, consisting in precious marbles and highly refined bronzes with water jets, a photographic campaign has been carried out exclusively for documentation purposes of the current state of pres...
Article
Starting in the late Domitian age, through Nero’s Empire and ending in Hadrian’s principate, an increasing technological shift relating to both opus caementicium and centring work made it possible to build cupolas with unprecedented technical solutions in terms of both dimension and shape. Hadrian’s strain was applied to the development of innovati...
Conference Paper
Il Teatro Marittimo è un edificio fra i più celebri dell’antichità classica ed è stato oggetto di innumerevoli rilievi che nel corso dei secoli ne hanno di volta in volta attestato lo stato di conservazione, i restauri e l'“ambientazione” all'interno del paesaggio architettonico e naturalistico della Villa Adriana. Il rilievo del colore, al pari de...

Research on architectural archaeology conducted by archaeologists, architects, engineers – and more recently by computer scientists – is characterized by different goals and methodologies. Only sometimes does this result in profitable contributions. Instead, attitudes very often remain deeply rooted in single-discipline vision unable to communicate...

El propósito de este trabajo es destacar el papel de la precisión de la textura para una representación fiable de los materiales presentes en algunos relevantes monumentos de Rávena (Italia), pertenecientes a la Lista del Patrimonio Mundial y que datan de la Antigüedad Tardía. Una serie de estrategias se explicarán con el fin de aprovechar las vent...
Article
The geometry underlying the design of sixteenth-century fortifications is a subject of considerable interest among scholars of military architecture. Many treatises from the period emphasize the importance of using geometrical constructions for the design of defensive elements in proper proportion to the entire edifice. One treatise, the Epitomi de...

This paper presents the results of an ongoing research on the survey of vaulted structures of important Italian monumental buildings belonging to UNESCO World Heritage Sites (Ravenna, Rome and Florence). The three case studies deal with various problems of documentation and representation of vaults and domes from different points of view: the first...
Article
This paper deals with the relationship between geometrical rules and proportions as design techniques for military architecture proposed by the engineer Giovanni Battista Antonelli during the late sixteenth century. After a short introduction about the Antonelli family of engineers, the paper focuses on a case study, the Fort of Bernia near Alicant...

Analysis and survey systems for the study of military architectures with particular interest for modern military architecture, designed by Antonelli in the basin of Central America and North Africa. The research concerns the comparison of the typological characteristics of the fortified architecture, the study of the geometries that characterize the relationship between investigation and project in the definition of the defensive system and the production of dissemination systems for the promotion of monumental complexes.
