Mutual Heritage: from historical integration to contemporary active participation is a project on the recent architectural and urban heritage in the Mediterranean area, funded by the European Union within the scope of the Euromed Heritage 4 programme. Mutual Heritage is targeted at identifying, documenting and promoting the recent heritage built over the last two centuries in some areas of the Mediterranean and means to enhance the integration of the cultural heritage in contemporary social and economic dynamics. The seminar is divided in two parts: one is an analysis on the general theme of awareness, identification and conservation, the other is a chance to compare different approaches, methods of intervention and standpoints of those who actively operate on the heritage.

MANAGING, DESIGNING, HANDLING AND COMMUNICATING THE CULTURAL HERITAGE. A CASE STUDY ON THE MEGALITHIC SITE OF SAINT MARTIN DE CORLEANS IN AOSTA
2.30 – 6.00 pm, SALA BELRIGUARDO, HALL 5, GROUND FLOOR
The seminar is meant to analyse an Italian case study in order to discuss what could be the method for the creation of a scientific-museum complex in our country. The process too often neglects some necessary passage due to an insufficient regulatory framework that cannot guarantee the proper establishment of a “special” public facility such as Contemporary Museums should be; where architects are among the many others in a complex procedure that involves different players. This is why the legislative framework that regulates public works must necessarily be integrated and amended with ad hoc processes that take into consideration such complexity.
The case study of the Museum for the Archaeological site of St. Martin de Corleans in Aosta, told by its various players and laid as the base for a broader debate, is meant to highlight on these issues, to throw a metaphorical rock in a sea that is still too calm.

Restoration is still viewed as “fixing” after the deterioration processes that have damaged the cultural and art heritage. In the case of deteriorated mosaics, these phenomena are both entropic and caused by men and favour or cause the loss of matter, thus deeply altering the aesthetic and documental “quality”. This is to say, then, that to withstand the problem restoration stands as restoring the lost quality to safeguard the “memory”, retrieving “quality” meant as authenticity”. Variations, shortcomings, additions, de-contextualization contribute to the loss of meaning and the gap between text and context. To this regard the dialogue-conflict between restoring and preserving finds its place.
This volume by Paolo Racagni, collects some important interventions carried out by Fondazione RavennAntica on prestigious museums at national and international level.
Boasting remarkable expertise gathered with many restoration works in the complex of the new Museo Archeologico di Classe, RavennAntica stands as the promoter of interventions for the preservation and valorisation of the museum heritage.
