Abstract

The Nineteenth-century urban parks witness of the relationship in constant becoming between nature and town. The need of progressive adjustment to the use demands has led, in the years, to modify the natural components, the built ones and the activities. Such interventions have, in a few cases, changed the characters of the parks, using materials, construction techniques and plants incompatible with the system. This often compromises the system balance and speeds up the decay process. The recent recovery of the Municipal Park of Naples, realized in 1778 and modified and increased in the early Nineteenth-century, is a significant case study, in order to evaluate the results of interventions performed. In fact, this intervention produced alterations due to the poor control of the compatibility between new and pre-existent technological elements, even thought it was aimed at the recovery of the harmonic relationship between nature and building. Starting from the analysis of the flooring replacement intervention, realized in tufo, the proposed study is aimed to outline criteria for the control of the project choices concerning the requalification and maintenance of the urban parks, according to strategies oriented to the balance preservation of the plant / building /activity system.
