Proceedings of the International Conference The drawing of ancient monuments in the XIXth century. Between technics and ideology (Catania, 25 November 2009)


This volume is based on the essays presented to the conference ‘The graphic documentation of ancient monuments in the 19th Century. Technique and ideology’, hosted by the Faculty of Literature of the University of Catania on 25 November 2009. It contains 10 articles written in Italian, English and French. Two of the articles focus on the rediscovery of Mycenae and the Treasury of Atreus.

It is important to point out that the present volume does not claim to be an exhaustive research on the theme and on the period specified in title, which in any case would have been impossible, especially in a single day of work. Neither, on the other hand, does the artificiality of the time frame indicated in the title of the Congress escape us, since changes in methodological and technical approaches to the study and graphical documentation of ancient monuments date as far back as the last thirty years of 1700s, and evolve until at least the first two decades of the 1900s. Afterwards, the differences are more applicative in nature, usually relating to the introduction of advanced research technologies.
