Il restauro dell'architettura, l'architettura del restauro

To preserve the architecture of the past, we must continue to create architecture, whatever its nature and composition. It is useless to continue to hide the truth: the survival of monumental architecture depends on: 1) the way in which modern civilization will be able to give a positive answer to the contradiction between the availability of immense historic resources, science and technology, on  one hand, and the constant monitoring of their misuse and dissipation, on the other hand, for obvious reasons of financial gain and in the absence of concrete structural and environmental restoration programs, 2) the ability to design and implement - with the protection of architectural heritage - the conditions of existence of a new, even revolutionary, constructive civilization, in the full acceptance of historical-cultural and technical-productive connotations.
