Is restoration the biggest treat for the built heritage?


The fire of La Fenice theater in Venezia, the Guerini chapel in Torino as many other terrible damage to the World Heritage, are related to restoration works. There is the urgent need of going deeper in the study of fire safety during restoration of the built heritage as we cannot afford anymore the risk of destroying what we are going to restore.

The technical approach may not be sufficient as the problem is deeply related with irrational human behavior but the complexity of the problem is not a good reason for delaying a common effort in finding a solution. Any contribution of any kind on this sensitive topic is welcome.
