Each in situ musealization plastically places the text/con-text relationship exercising the evocative function of architecture in a double direction: in relation to the historical text – often fragmentary, discontinuous, incapable of communication even to an expert eye – contemporary architecture seeks to resonate with what remains of past architecture, evoking its spatial characteristics, order of movement, quality of light; in relation to the urban context, the intervention redesigns road layouts, defines perspective escapes, establishes physical relationships, expanding or contracting the echo of history. The paper deals with two particular categories of interventions can be investigated in which the in situ musealization of urban archaeology becomes an opportunity for reintegration of the building fabric and topographical reconnection.
