Archaeology, Architecture and Art
In fact the metropolitan area of Naples hosts many underground structures back-dated to the Ancient Roman Empire, dominating the Mediterranean. At the same time the city of Naples is also a place for innovative infrastructures like the so called urban underground “Stations of Arts”, such as the multi-awarded Toledo and Università stations. They are examples of the ability to give value to a place through the synergy and interaction between archaeology, architecture and art, representing a model for innovative solutions accomplished during excavation works. Therefore WTC 2019 has come to the decision to plan some sessions dedicated to the “Triple A” (Archaeology, Architecture and Art).
According to Eng. Renato Casale, WTC 2019 Organizing Committee President, “The main objective of WTC 2019 Naples is the revealing and original interpretation of certain needs which are increasingly arising in the social life of national and international communities, including security, environmental quality and effective mobility. Underground works can provide one of the best answers to such needs because today they can leverage instruments used by technicians with increasing awareness and ability, grounded in integrated project design which combine far-removed or even divergent disciplines: dynamic planning, design of underground spaces and facilities, safety and automation technologies, architecture, art and archaeology”.
