"Restoration of traditional villages in Greece and Italy" Eleni Anagnou - Stayroula Kouri

The subject of this project is the study of the techniques of restoration of traditional villages in Greece and Italy. We considered interesting their paralleled study, because both countries are rich in monuments and traditional villages, such as tradition in restoration. Through our time at the Torino Technical University with the Erasmous program, we had the opportunity to study the techniques of restoration in Italy.

For this project we chose two examples of each country. From Greece, we chose Vathia in Mani, and the city of Ydra. From Italy we chose Chieri and Salbertrand. Of course, the understanding of the architecture of each village is a great factor of this project. Then, we will make a presentation of the restoration problems and the solutions chosen in each case, trying to see the reason that led to them and valuating the results. In the same time, it’s necessary a brief presentation of the legal references of each country.

With this project, we tried to contribute in the study of restoration of traditional villages. Through this procedure we decided that many problems are common for the two countries. We hope we managed to underline the negative examples, so as not to be done again, and to show off the positive ones, as example for the future.
