Riassunto analitico
The Dissertation focuses on the grain silos built in Italy during the 1930s, when the so-called ammassi granari collettivi (collective grain storages) were put into service under the pressure of the autarchic Fascist policies. Those buildings represents today a significant architectural heritage which is largely unused and rarely object of attention. <br>The main objectives of this research are: (1) to perform a critical analysis of the Italian grain silos of the Fascist period, defining their features, assessing their values, performing their mapping and initiating their inventory; (2) to propose a framework for guidelines for the conservation and adaptive reuse of such structures, addressing the main challenges raised by their typology, their construction elements, and their deeply different territorial contexts. <br>The research was developed with a multidisciplinary approach and was organized in the following parts: (1) Modern architecture and Industrial heritage: between knowledge, conservation and adaptive reuse; (2) The Italian grain silos of the fascist period: from the history of the typology to the statement of significance; (3) Conservation and reuse challenges in two emblematic case studies: the silos of Arezzo and Albinia; (4) Developing reuse and conservation policies: a proposal of inventory fiches and a framework for guidelines. <br>
