Target skills and knowledge: Becoming familiar with some concepts concerning the Industrial Heritage. Such a kind of concepts will be introduced through a series of Italian and European case studies.
Examination methods: The quality of participation during the course, the workshops and a final written report will be assessed.
Assessment criteria: Giving a note to the paper together with evaluating the quantity and quality of participation in the class.
Course unit contents: The course is aimed to give the required interpretation tools for the comprehension of the former industrial sites as a new heritage born as side effect of the de-industrialisation processes of the second half of 20th century. In reference to the principles of the Nizhny Tagil Chart elaborated by Ticcih (The International Committee for the Conservation of the Industrial Heritage) in 2003 for the protection of industrial heritage, the historic trend of Industrial Heritage size increase will be illustrated: from the monuments to the company towns, from the urban regeneration programs for industrial cities to the rehabilitation of industrial landscapes. By means of accurate analyses of significant best practices, knowledge tools, interpretation criteria and valorisation models will be compared in terms of authenticity respect and appropriate reutilisation of the industrial heritage.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: The course envisages three levels of activities: a set of theoretical lessons on the meaning of Industrial Heritage and its evolution; the illustration of a series of best practices of valorization and reconversion of significant Industrial Heritage sites in Italy and Europe; a final exercise concerning the implementation, on the case study selected by the student, of the Unesco application form for the nomination to the World Heritage List (WHL).
