Saved in:
The Karelian wooden architecture is recognized as an object of treat peculiarity and interest on an international scale. The study days are addressed to the universities and the institutions involved into the project and they set the promotion of research activities launched in this country as a target. The aim of the operation is to encourage the relations, not only the cultural ones, between Italy, Finland, Karelia bringing into contact operators of this field through a threading of meetings of which the present represents one of the first opportunities. The gained scientific experiences about topics liked to the recovery, the rehabilitation and the improvement of historical centres, with intensive activities of research and analyse, produced a know-how which is highly valuable at the present moment; especially for the use of specific applications of the new technologies, for the monitoring and for the data-management useful for the restoration, the urban planning and management in sensitive areas, like urban centres of historical and environmental interest. In particular the Karelian territory is configured as a dense area of elements which need a high attention in order to crease the value of the territory itself and its anthropic activities. The objective of a census of the traditional wooden architecture and natural environment and landscaping purposes is to determine not only the species and appearance but also the analysis of damages and the conditions, for identifying critical management factors. The census defines the landscaping and environmental aspects, as well as the diagnostic picture of each context on the basis of its intrinsic characteristics, possible untraditional elements, and finding the way to restablished the correct structure of the place. We are able to identify and define the intervention priorities. Innovative methods to survey and georeference data on architecture buildings allow us to acquire exact knowledge of the status of localities.
