    Rebuilding / Restoring Rome

    The Renewal of Buildings and Spaces as Urban Policy, from Antiquity to the Present

    Everywhere in Rome, monuments are covered with ancient or modern inscriptions that not only contain the name of the original builder but also commemorate their restoration. Popes from the Quattrocento and Cinquecento who acted as urban planners, such as Sixtus IV, presented themselves as ‘restorers’, even when they were actually modernising the City. This phenomenon is not restricted to the Renaissance period: many Roman emperors already claimed to be rebuilders, such as Augustus who repaired all the damaged temples of Rome according to the Res Gestae, or Septimius Severus who was called Restitutor Vrbis on his coinage. Rome thus seems to be a city that constantly needs to be restored, rebuilt, born again. This conference aims to investigate how the notions of restoration and rebuilding were a driving force of Rome’s urban transformation throughout its history, from Antiquity to the 21st century, as well as a political program put forward by the authorities and an ideal more or less shared by the different key actors of the city.

    House and palace - a history of protected buildings

    École de Chaillot doctoral study day

    Cette manifestation est dédié à l’architecture domestique et résidentielle protégée. Ces espaces bâtis seront questionnés sous différents angles : l’historique de la protection, la définition du corpus concerné (distinction entre monument et maison), l’échelle de la protection de l’architecture domestique et résidentielle (rapport entre le contenant, le contenu et le contexte), ses modalités de protection et de prescription au regard des outils anciens et contemporains, la nature de l’intervention sur ce bâti (entretien, projet de conservation-restauration). Ces différentes approches sont sous-tendues par des usages, des contextes historiques (notamment l’histoire urbaine), des critères socio-économiques et culturels.

    The role of the coastal cities of the Maghreb in history

    La ville est un ensemble matériel et immatériel produit par une société vivant dans un environnement particulier temporel et spatial (Les villes et le monde, du Moyen Âge au XXe siècle, éd. M.

On tenant compte du processus de déstructuration et restructuration de l’espace de l’époque médiévale à l’époque contemporaine, jusqu’à la veille des indépendances des pays maghrébins.
