Abstract

In architectural survey, thermography is particularly important to understand some of the determinants of an historical building. In this memory it is emphasized the need to establish a synergy between historical-critical research and thermographical investigation, both from the methodological point of view and application. For this purpose, we propose some theoretical considerations and a study aimed at investigating the materials and the technological solutions adopted in the historical center of Cosenza. Finally, the knowledge of the technological/material characters of an historical building (or an urban aggregate), acquired through the thermographical investigations and the analysis of bibliographic/documentary sources, contributes to forming the necessary substrate on which to base each restoration or valorisation work of an historical center.
