This work resulted from a new research activity carried out by the ICCD, Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities, and the Department of Architectural Planning and Studies, University of Rome “Tre”. This research project is aimed at developing a well-organised reference for systematic identification and cataloguing of architectural properties belonging to the Italian country. Publication (Italian language only) is edited by the Order of Architects, Prospettive Edizioni. The reference system is a hierarchically organized glossary of architectural terminology, from broadest to most detailed levels, by means of illustrated and written definitions. The thesaurus improves understanding of cultural heritage and is highly useful in planning applications, with its broad lexicology referring to a wide variety of building types. It describes all common types of residential architecture and their typical architectural and structural components. The first volume consists of a systematic collection of texts organized in illustrated thematic vocabulary.
