Arc Boutant Historic Preservation Program in Matera, Italy:
Preservation of the Sassi (cave structures)
July 14-28, 2006

In collaboration with the Italian state historic preservation office, this
program addresses the preservation of Matera's 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 as well as
through investigation of technical issues of construction and conservation.

A full description of the program is available at: To
