Aim of the chapter is the study of the historic urban landscape of Teramo, characterized by its Cathedral and by the surrounding squares, outcome of important processes of modification and transformation that took place over time. The current configuration of the Cathedral, characterized by a medieval architectural language and in an isolated position with respect to the urban fabric, is the result of the restoration works carried out in the ‘20 s and the ‘30 s, aimed at bringing the Cathedral back to its presumed medieval facies, and by the demolition of the buildings that placed against it. Based on the architectural survey of the historic artifact and of its context and on the archival-documental analysis, the work proposes a critical re-reading of the building and of its transformations, aimed at the understanding of the historical, architectural and cultural processes that have brought to the current landscape image.

Abstract

Aim of the chapter is the study of the historic urban landscape of Teramo, characterized by its Cathedral and by the surrounding squares, outcome of important processes of modification and transformation that took place over time. The current configuration of the Cathedral, characterized by a medieval architectural language and in an isolated position with respect to the urban fabric, is the result of the restoration works carried out in the ‘20 s and the ‘30 s, aimed at bringing the Cathedral back to its presumed medieval facies, and by the demolition of the buildings that placed against it. Based on the architectural survey of the historic artifact and of its context and on the archival-documental analysis, the work proposes a critical re-reading of the building and of its transformations, aimed at the understanding of the historical, architectural and cultural processes that have brought to the current landscape image.
