Restored by anastylosis

The intent of anastylosis is to reconstruct historical architectural monuments which have collapsed from the original material. This is done by placing components back in their original place.

World Heritage Sites connected to Restored by anastylosis

  • Acropolis (1902 Parthenon and Erechtheion)
  • Agrigento (Temple of Heracles)
  • Ancient Thebes (Karnak Red Chapel)

  • Aquileia AB review :- "Some of the restoration work carried out in the decades immediately preceding and following World War II on excavated archaeological areas would not be considered acceptable by current standards. This has involved the reconstruction of colonnades using brick to fill missing portions of columns and importing stone slabs for paving, which goes beyond the limits of acceptable anastylosis. However, a more rigorous policy is now in operation, involving minimal intervention."
