Abstract

The case study presented regards an Orphanage built, within a specific social program, by the O.N.P.M.I. (National Opera for Southern Italy) for "the physical and moral assistance of war orphans" in the first half of the twentieth century. The building, designed by the architect Vittorio Paron, author of numerous other orphanages, was built between 1950 and 1957 and it presents a distribution and volumetric arrangement articulated, according to the functionalist approach. The objective of this contribution is to report the results of the validation of an operative methodology elaborated in the complex of the research ac-tivity on the topics of refurbishment, in particular also of the specific typologies of the twentieth century Italian architecture. Specifically, in the case study, “active conservation” has translated into the restoring strategy of the original architectural and spatial features of the building, also in respect of the historical and symbolic value that the building has as-sumed in the local context, giving coherence to a prevailing conservation address for Ital-ian modernism.
