Abstract

. The DICAR department of the Polytechnic of Bari, highly experienced in ancient architecture and stone-work, is researching and testing new methodological procedures for the sustainability of anastylosis. It has been successful in reproducing complex architectural elements thanks to CAD/CAM software linked to CNC machining. The integration of reproductions of the same original material as the missing elements together with compatible fixing systems of low invasiveness can avoid any alteration of the original static system and guarantee the structural integrity of the structure. Also the combined use of electronic systems allows the optimization of the processing steps so favouring the economic sustainability of the procedure. On-going research aims for improvement in stone machining and for the training of specialized operators, already working within the field, adapting them to the specific needs of archaeological restoration.
