The interest for archaeological ruins arises periodically in the course of history and it expresses itself through a continuous alternating of attitude towards the ‘ancient’: approaching and moving away, memory and forgetfulness, continuity and discontinuity; a condition that makes the ‘care for the ruins’ a distinguishing feature in the Western-Mediterranean culture and an essential action that belongs to our identity. Nowadays is possible to see that the desire of having knowledge of the past is growing up in society but frequently the way of answering to this requirement is made of distorted devices of historical remembrance that if on one hand they demonstrate the socio-cultural momentous of the ‘ancient’, on the other hand they denounce a new problem in the relationship between archaeology and architecture: the spectacular nature of the archaeological ruins and their mass consumption. In this situation, is necessary to know what does this ‘take care of’ mean and how architectural discipline and research can help to answer to this question, beginning from the contemporary socio-cultural conditions. The subject of this essay is the analysis of the relationships between archaeological ruins and project of architecture in their complex implications on the construction of contemporary landscape. Beginning with the definition of ‘significance’ and ‘value’ for the ruins, the thesis investigates the reasons, needs and standards of interventions in archaeological contexts, with relation to the sites’ extent and to the variable cultural factors of the contemporary society and environment.
