Abstract

FRANCESCO VALENTI 'S RESTORATIONS IN THE CHURCH OF "SOPPRESSI BASILIANI' AT MILI SAN PIETRO (ME). OBSERVATIONS ON CRITERIA AND PROCEDURES OF INTERVENTION The church of S. Maria, built in 1091, after the conquer of Sicily by the Normans, has been studied with an archaeologic-stratigraphic approach finding out nine different of which the V- VI- VII phases are relative to the interventions of Francesco Valenti at the beginning of the twenties. The investigation on the basic logic of the works conducted by Valenti indicates the clear will to safeguard the building but, from a formal point of view, to "free " it from the "modem structures " in order to guarantee the completeness of the Norman image. The judgement of value expressed by Valenti is evident both in the subtraction of material, considered as a cause of confusion in the reading of the original building, and in the occasions of introduction of material, integrated in a mimetic way with the original one.
