SummaryAmong the various case studies of interest we identified the area of Rome’s Jewish Ghetto in which we will deepen the announced issues.
In order to acquire a deep knowledge of this area an architectural and urban survey campaign data cataloguing is under way. To this end a “Leica 3D Disto” equipment was purchased. The studies on the critical aspects in terms of energy will follow a first phase of diagnostic aimed at identifying suitable and sustainable procedures. A comparison and assessment phase of the identified procedures will follow with regard to the their higher or lower capacity of impacting on the formal aspects of the historical environment. Finally, such catalogued procedures will be analyzed in terms of theirs cost-effectiveness trying, as well, to identify the actual relations between the productivity directly deriving from the historical-monumental value of the environment and the impacts deriving from a possible action of energy regeneration.

The Engineering Faculty coordinates a research unit participating in PRIN (PEA4H8) whose title is “The Protection of the Landscape between Conservation and Transformation. Economy and Beauty for Sustainable Development (La difesa del paesaggio tra conservazione e trasformazione.Economia e bellezza per uno sviluppo sostenibile)”, co-funded by MIUR (Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research for the Area 08, Civil Engineering and Architecture.
UNINETTUNO unit has adopted a multidisciplinary approach and includes:
Gerardo Maria Cennamo, Engineering Faculty, Unit Head;
Marta Flamini, Engineering Faculty, Member;
- Nora Moll, Literature Faculty, Member.
The project basic research line is mainly addressed to the question of landscape intended in the widest and current meaning of the term, that is as a complex resource including elements that can be materially, naturally and artificially identifiable as well as by immaterial factors, essential elements for developing the potentials existing in the territories in terms of natural, economic, cultural and social capital.
Energy-sparing renewal represents a currently debated issue since it deepens the questions related to the optimization of the huge dissipation of non-renewable energy caused by common constructions.
The presence of a built heritage, largely needing regeneration interventions, contributes to assign a strong focus to the issue of “contrasting” functional, technological and energy inefficiencies of constructions.
Of course, these issues cause high levels of criticisms and conflicts, is set in the context of our historical cities, in which any modification of architectural heritage need a very high level quality control.
Therefore, the contribution made by this unit will be able to identify sectors for multidisciplinary analysis, ranging from comparative analysis of the different architectural typologies and urban contexts by identifying the archetypes and historical stratifications, to the assessment of possible procedure deemed suitable in energy terms, to the management of an historical place as a resource for economic development, to the interpretation of the ontological aspects of the historical city and analysis of transformation historical processes.
In the project framework and coherently with its main objectives and aims, UNINETTUNO research units deepen the question of the energy-sparing renewal of historical town and tries, conceiving design as a fundamental tool for studying and analyzing the changes of the architectural heritage, to highlight the main procedural questions, cooperating in the identification of suitable methodologies and operational tools.
The cases that more properly address these research themes is represented by the many urban areas, city centers, city districts and suburbs largely shaping the urban areas of the Italian territories that, even though they are not under specific rules of protection or linked to the definition of “historical centre” according to widely acknowledged city-planning meaning, are expression of valuable formal balance, synthesis of morphological and architectural features developed during successive epochs or, in more recent terms, centuries. Under these circumstances and also in consideration of the relevant productive capacity, that often can be found in these place (in terms of tourism, restaurants, craftsmanship, business resources), taken for granted the impossibility to defer the implementation of an organic and extensive reduction of energy dissipation due to the permanence of a common architectural heritage, this research work will analyze the main design and management methodologies linked to renewal actions of the buildings of historical cities, in order to promote an indispensable exchange of knowledge and good practices apt to guide the definition of governance operational tools for creating innovative models of valorization and development of historical areas.
