Un progetto di recupero per il complesso monumentale di Usolye nella regione della Kama Superiore

Sandro Parrinello, Federico Cioli


The paper deals with the documentation of Upper Kama’s traditional architecture in order to develop large-scale renewal plans. The territory represents a border between Eastern and Western Russia and a meeting point for European and Asian culture. The Region preserves several examples of a distinctive provincial architecture, rich in orthodox complexes and neoclassical industrial settlements of the eighteen century. In 1606, Nikita Stroganov founded Usolye, a commercial outpost for the production of salt in the Urals. The project takes its Historic Centre as a case study for the development of a methodological approach. The entire Upper Kama heritage is currently experiencing a period of decay and abandonment, which is leading to the disappearing of several important settlements. The aim of the research is to develop a digital database containing necessary information regarding the state of preservation and providing important instruments for renewal plans and valorization.
