The research here related is the result of the Co-operation of the DIIAR Department of the Politecnico of Milan to the
European School of Advanced Studies, ESAS : in the Istituto Universitario di Studi Superiori in Pavia has been set up
the ESAS, School of Excellence, in the Conservation of the Historical and Architectonic Heritage (CPSA). The
President of ESAS is the Professor Roberto Schmid, which is the Chancellor of the University of Pavia, one of the most
ancient university in Italy, the Director is the Professor GianPaolo Calvi of the University of Pavia, Faculty of
Engineering, DIET Department of Ingegneria Edile e del Territorio.
The course has been organized for the first year in 500 hours lesson and 200 practical lesson (full time). At the Course
are admitted graduated students in Architecture, in Engineering, and Humanistic Science which want to increase their
knowledge and which want to work in the field of the Conservation of the Cultural and Historical Heritage; but the
Course is also offered to graduated professional man and woman, to whom in the Public Administration (from local
government, municipality, province, region, to national government, Ministerial Offices of Cultural Heritage, Local
Monuments and Fine Arts Offices) attend at the conservation and environmental protection and want to specialize
themselves in the disciplines involved in the intervention on the territory and on the architectural manufacts. The ESAS
took place in the DIET Department of the University of Pavia.
The School is particularly focused on the methodology of
survey and management of qualitative, descriptive and
quantitative data which come from the different analysis
carried out on the manufacts: among the subjects there is
the topographic survey, photogrammetric survey of the
architecture, Cad to support the representation and 3D
modelling of the objects, Geographic Information System
for the Cultural Heritage, integrated survey methodologies
and not destructive analysis, Cataloguing of the Cultural
The works here presented are the result of the teaching
and of the Stage (two months) which took place in the
DIIAR Department: the works are reproduced on a CD
support and has been exposed in the closing ceremony of
the School.
The activity of the students during this period has been
focused on the survey and representation of a sector of
the Castello Visconteo of Pavia. Since the Caste of Pavia
hosts the civic museum “Civici Musei”, the surveys was
used to create also a GIS prototype to manage the
Cataloguing of the precious collections.
The topics in which the students are involved are divided
in two fields: the first field is represented by the survey
and representation; the second is the data management
to support the different phases of the project of
conservation and of the Cataloguing of the monuments or
objects in the museum hosted by the caste.
The survey, the representation and the information
diffusion of the Cultural Heritage
The aim of the Course is, on side, to communicate to
the students a methodological approach to the problem
of the survey of Cultural Heritage in order to support the
project of conservation and to diffuse the information
acquired during the cognitive process, using the most
advanced instruments and technology; on the other side
there is the aim to teach them how to use the
instruments, new technologies and dedicated software.
