Arc Boutant Historic Preservation Program in Matera, Italy: Preservation of the Sassi (cave structures)
June 13-27, 2003
In collaboration with the Italian historic preservation office, this program addresses the preservation of the ancient part-cave, part-constructed dwellings (the Sassi, a UNESCO World Heritage Monument). Through cultural immersion in this remote yet cosmopolitan southern Italian city, the program approaches preservation through a historical, sociological, geographical, and anthropological study of the site.
