    VALLETTA’S BAROQUE: HISTORY AND RESTORATION
    2.30 – 6.30 pm, SALA CASTELLO, FIRST FLOOR, LOBBY

    Organization: Centro DIAPReM, reporting to Laboratorio TekneHub del Tecnopolo dell’Università di Ferrara - Rete Alta Tecnologia della Regione Emilia-Romagna
    Scientific coordination: University of Malta - International Institute for Baroque Studies
    Media Partner: Maggioli Editore

    The Baroque heritage of Malta – vividly expressed in the city-fortress of Valletta, built by the Knights Hospitaliers of Saint John the Baptist after the Turkish siege of 1565 and intricate marvel of defence systems, fortifications, palaces and churches that all together form an orthogonal urban solution of great historic value and visual impact, it requires high-level professional restoration interventions. During the seminar the speeches by Professor Denis De Lucca, Stephen Spiteri and Architect Hermann Bonnici will shed light on the key issues on the history and the restoration of the Maltese Baroque capital, created by Laparelli da Cortona in the XVI century and later enriched by many other famed architects such as Buonamici and Carapecchia in the XVII and XVIII century under the patronage of the Grand Masters of the Sacred Religion of Malta.
    This seminar opens the debate on the urgent need to draft a working plan in order to manage the rebirth of the "City of God" of the Knights of Jerusalem, accurately described by the French traveller Albert Jouvin de Rochefort in 1664 as "l'une dés plus fortes places de l'Univers."
    Speeches:

    ALBERTI’S BOX
    THE CULTURAL MULTIMEDIA PROJECT APPLIED TO LEON BATTISTA ALBERTI’S ARCHITECTURE

    2.30 – 6.30 pm, SALA SCHIFANOIA, HALL 2, GROUND FLOOR
    Scientific coordination: Fondazione Centro Studi Leon Battista Alberti in Mantua
    Centro DIAPReM, reporting to Laboratorio TekneHub del Tecnopolo dell’Università Ferrara - Rete Alta Tecnologia della Regione Emilia-Romagna
    Collaborators: Municipality of Mantua and Centro Internazionale d’Arte e di Cultura di Palazzo Te
    Media Partner: Maggioli Editore

    Alberti’s Box is a new way to promote, both in Italy and abroad, the buildings designed by a remarkable Renaissance intellectual: Leon Battista Alberti. The long-lived collaboration between the Centro dipartimentale DIAPReM in Ferrara and Fondazione Centro Studi Leon Battista Alberti in Mantua gave life, in bundle with Consorzio Ferrara Ricerche, to a cultural project aimed at disseminating the research and documental work on Alberti’s architecture by tracing back and recreating a flow of images and thoughts, in the attempt of “explaining” how Alberti designed and what are the issues his architecture still poses. The idea is very simple and has the purpose of not replacing the building as a whole, but rather to stimulate its direct view. This is a very interesting initiative not only because it provides a new angle on Alberti’s architecture, but also because it focuses on buildings, such as architectural entities, that would hardly be noticed, perceived and understood without an operation of digital de-materialization and following re-materialization. Alberti’s Box is a digital format that may be replicated anywhere and is devised with certain flexibility and adaptability to different spaces that from time to time will be available for the set-up. The project that will be launched for the first time at international level at Salone del Restauro di Ferrara will not be the final model, though a first occasion to test the cultural project and its relevant communication potential.
    The seminar will be the chance for offering and opening a debate on the specimen of Alberti’s Box displayed at al Salone del Restauro 2011.
