Description

This monograph discusses the role that ruins play in urban centres in terms of their meaning, testimony, and value, and the opportunities they provide. After an outline of historical and contemporary of ap­proaches, with a special analysis of British and Italian approaches, Elisa Pilia puts forward a methodology for the investigation of the strategic values of such artefacts, and ideas for their potential contribution to a sustainable requalification of historic urban cores. The protocol is tested on the historical centre of Cagliari, a mid-sized port city on the southern coast of the island of Sardinia, Italy, where the remains left by aerial bombardment during the Second World War are still a dramatic part of the controversial European debate on how to reuse ruins.
