Considering the enormous amount of the architecture built in the 20th century, only the most significant instances will be able to be restored in the true sense of the term. To do this a positive assessment must be made of the many forms of the general orientation towards the restoration of modern architecture. The difficult and operational relationship proposed by the design of restoration for buildings or modern urban fabrics can in fact highlight the issues of the ‘critical continuity’ between the past and the present and also the actions designed to maintain architecture and to modify contexts may constitute supports for each other for development which looks to the future. As an alternative to the analogical relationship between the concepts of protection and conservation which usually compress use objectives, the search for the identity of a work of architecture is a path which connects ‘value judgements’ with the objective of contemporary design itself, fully representing the idea of ‘active protection’.

Keywords: Architectural restoration; critical continuity; active protection
