Abstract

Studies about its anastylosis in Italy are rather delayed, in the face of the important results obtained by researches treated in Greece by highly qualified institutions like the YSMA (The Acropolis Restoration Service) which bore witness of the thirty years restoration experience of the Athens’ Acropolis.The delay is clear considering the condition of the Italian heritage: in the South of Italy and in Sicily, problems about material deterioration menace the ancient monuments. The DICAR was interested in testing anastylosis and its problems; Pi.Mar, a leader company in Puglia for the manufacturing of stone, was partner in this test which aims to reproduce elaborate architectural elements thanks to Cad/Cam, a computer-aided technology. The combined use of innovative systems, like the technique research on the 3D laser system and the CAM/CAD machine based on numerical control, allowed the optimization of the processing steps. Methodological innovation brought to the production of a fragment of a Doric capital belonging to the so-called late-Hellenistic Egnazia’s Foro. The replenishment of the lacking parts with the same original material, the study of compatible fixing system, avoid the alteration of the ancient static system and guarantee the structural integrity of the element. The studies in progress, as we can see from the first results, aim at improving the machine tools’ technologies, in order to adapt them to the specific purposes of the archaeological restoration.
