Therefore the medieval builder who constructed on ancient ruins and from ancient ruins viewed it as materia signata : the substance of which the substratum city is built and that, despite having lost its significance, is transformed into meaningful heritage. In keeping with the masonry-plastic characters of Roman and Romanised cultural areas, the elements that were produced, apart from linear ones of Greek origin, typically featured two dimensions that prevailed over a third flat or curved elements and easily remained continuous, omogeneus and organic with the other elements of a structure.
As well as, on the fabric scale, the serial persistence of the base fabric and the singularity of the special organisms continues in other forms. The acknowledgment of the characters and of the building susceptibility of what the ancients have physically left to the new city, therefore, takes place at all scales. It is a metabolization process through which the city consumes the Ancient, regenerating itself, proof of the resilience of the plastic city of which Rome was the greatest expression. It is a phase that already had significant precedents in Roman times.

From a constructive point of view, the choice of elements that could be obtained at different levels mainly involved:. However, it also concerns the new typological effort spent in reusing ancient substrate layouts, with the widespread dequantification of special structures and their return to base types functions. As well as through re-employment, the recognition of the ancient structures of elements is evident through the recovery of typical building systems.
There is no doubt that the reassembly of fragments of spolia involves an element of organicity features such as proportion and congruence borrowed through the custom with pre-existences. This consideration is even more obvious at the scale of the aggregative organism, of fabric where the continued existence of ancient buildings and urban structures indicates organic and typical proportions take insulae for example. As mentioned earlier, this way of transforming existing urban lanscape has significant precedents as far back as Ancient Roman times.
When chosen and rearranged within a new structures, however, they established a new relationship of necessity between elements. This act of renaming things— which was widely practiced during the fifth century by Theoderic as a political act of reconciliation with the Roman civilitas and saw its first conclusion during the early XIII century— imbued each element with a role in new organisms that was equally structural, symbolic and political. An obvious example is the construction of Via Nazionale, which took its cue from the city square designed around the great exedra of the Roman baths.
But, in general, it is testified by the whole approach to the renovation of the historic city even in restructuring routes that, by their very nature traumatic, were traced with a sensitivity towards substratum constructions that, except for Viale Trastevere, is unequalled in Europe.
Take, for example, the case of Corso Rinascimento and the entire renovation programme carried out on the Stadium of Domitian. In conclusion, I believe that we can surmise a morphological, process-based method of interpreting the substratum that gave rise to modern cities based on cyclical phases of change, analysed, using the tools that architects possess, as meaningful heritage. The effort made to synthetically grasp the processes by turning to morphological methods, which we are by no means suggesting should substitute the essential work of archaeologists and historians, could have a fundamental value for the architectural design by indicating the ways in which not only history has generated new forms, but also how the present, so to speak, flows in the past.
This powerful legacy of guidelines — absolutely not oriented towards imitating the past—could support, if we are able to recognise them, the work of contemporary architects: a substratum of multiple, shared meanings, in contrast to the individualistic trend of architectural design. A legacy stratified over time, to be deciphered and interpreted with new eyes identifying within it a new and fertile organicity, as in every phase of the great civil crisis. The Conzenian notion of process M. The Conzenian notion of process involves all the scales of analysis, from the land plot to the city plan.
Conzen creates an entire universe of definitions to explain the general notion of process, where recurring terms such as accumulation of forms , persistence of forms, pattern metamorphosis , indicate a progressive development, according to certain laws of successive increments of the urban fabric. The Muratorian school notion of process For the Muratorian school a process is the gradual mutation of urban fabrics and building types. Reading, as the project, is always a critical operation and involves the responsibility of the designer.
As the proposal is based on the continuation of a historical process of transformation of the city still going on, the reading of the forming process is a substantial part of the project. This reading is based on two ideas: The collaboration of housing to form thespecialized buildings.

E-mail: chr94 outlook. From above. Current state, where the substrate cell of the ancient fabric is recognizable. Block substratum formed by elementary cells arranged around the open court space. Definitions Unlike a ruin from the Latin ruere , to collapse , a substratum from sub sternere , to spread beneath is recognised as a beginning, the living basis from which new organisms can spring.
The first, the consumption process, consists in the use of buildings that make up the urban organism until the original features constructive, distributive, spatial belonging to their type are lost. In this sense, the substratum is an advent that marks a phase of crisis, the start that establishes the initial structure of things; or rather, can establish it, because it is obvious that the concluding phase of consumption introduces a pair of opposite, yet complementary concepts: the essential concepts of cancellation and duration that we cannot go into here.
Tre saggi sulla teoria della sessualità - AbeBooks - Freud Sigmund:
Nevertheless, the consumption of the Ancient is never in itself a dissipation, it is not due to the mere economic necessity of avoiding the importation of materials from outside of the city. The heritage is always considered to be too precious to be squandered, even in periods of great poverty and distress. Apart from that, even as far back as the time of Theoderic, the symbolic importance of Roman antiquities was so great that the enormous effort of moving columns from the Domus Pinciana to Ravenna was considered justifiable GNOLI The second, the layering process, involves the diachronic development that lays down consecutive strata, each of which inherits features from the previous one and transmits others to the next.
This phase continues until a new building is constructed which, over time, is also destined to contribute to the layering process. A latent design that is valid even in its contemporary condition.

Umbertino-age consumption of the Terme di Diocleziano exedra. Principles it is worth highlighting that we can detect two essential principles at work in both phases. A principle of belonging whereby each substratum has its own predisposition towards a form and every form contains its own substratum.
This principle, whereby the new form and substratum belong to each other in a reciprocal relationship, can be applied in general, and to design in particular, as the concept of substratum can also be applied to the combination of intangible contributions which are intrinsic to a civic community, to a particular historical phase or a cultural area and are realized becoming reality thanks to the concept of type. Colloqui con Giorgio Voghera. An action confirmed by some central points drawing an inner spatial geometry which the artist seems to trace in the knowledge attained by the ancient Vedic and Chinese civilizations, and down and beyond to the Greek culture.

The eternal struggle between Good and Evil in which everyone must participate with works and arms. It is not a question of faculties, rather of an authentic living style; otherwise of blood, that is to say of ancient culture, of creation in the making.
Il canzoniere di Francesco Galeota tra etica amorosa e precettistica politica - pp. In the Eighteenth Century many Italians were active in Vienna, but Austrians of distinction were also present in Milan. The situation changed as from the end of the century. With the spread of nationalist ideology in Europe in the Nineteenth Century, the ruling and intellectual classes of Lombardy and the Veneto split into separatist and philo-Austrian groupings.
Particularly prominent amongst the latter was the Lombard count Giovan Battista Bolza , imperial and royal civil servant, man of letters, educationist, linguist and folklore scholar. His Rivista viennese Viennese Review , which was printed in Vienna, was especially important, being mainly intended as a vehicle for the diffusion of German literature in Italy.
Franz Grillparzer begins his journey through Italy in wishing to realize his literary dreams. His beliefs were deeply marked by the German tradition of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth centuries that saw Italy as the mother of European culture and the garden of Nature. His conflicting thoughts appeared in some of his poems and attracted severe criticism from the authorities. Such ideas deeply contributed to the birth of the typical sarcasm of a late classicist making him a prophet of the decadent movement.
Una malattia pronosticata da lontano. Declino e fine di mastro-don Gesualdo - pp. This study examines the disease that affects mastro-don Gesualdo, identifying the precondition of the pathological state in the persistent and unresolved psycho-emotional conflict of the character.
