Girifalco Fortress, Cortona (Italy), 17 -22 September
The Girifalco Fortress Restoration International Workshop will take place in September 17th -22nd, 2017. It will concern the preservation of Girifalco Fortress in Toscana – located in the highest point of Cortona, near Arezzo and surrounded by the green hills of the Tuscany – and its context.
Considering the high historical-architectural value of the fortified structure – which, however, preserves its original strategic aspects and which today is re-presented under other useful declinations -, the promotion of interdisciplinary activities crossing cine-photo-visual activities and architecture on the Girifalco site would lead to a multiform knowledge of its current physical reality and a triggering of virtuous valorization processes.
Therefore, the workshop aims to initiate an interdisciplinary intersection experience about the Fortress with the aim of drawing up guidelines for conservation-restoration design and for a compatible use according with landscaping-historical-typological-material features, based on integration with Cortona cultural and developmental needs.
In an original perceptive position towards Val di Chiana landscape, the Fortress will be investigated in an interdisciplinary way, by crossing cine-photography and architecture, for a multiform knowledge of its current physical features and for the definition of project proposals. The Participation to the Workshop is allowed to:
– graduating and graduated students in Architecture, Construction Engineering-Architecture, photography/video and Visual communication, from Italian and foreign University Academies and Institutions.
– students attending a Specialization School in Conservation of Architectural and Landscape Heritage.
