Project aims

In 1993 Castel Nuovo was included by the Ministery for Cultural Heritage in the "Plan for the recovery and restoration of the public museums of the historical centre of Naples", and the General Superintendency for post-seismic works in Campania and Basilicata was given the responsibility (this Superintendency was suppressed in 1995).

On this occasion, a general restoration project was set up by the planning group coordinated by Professor of Architecture Arnaldo Venditti (group members: Professor Cesare Cundari, Architect Stefano de Pertis, the structural engineer G. Mariniello, Dr P. Rota Rossi Doria for the conservation of stone materials).

Thanks to the support of the Superintendent Architect Giuseppe Zampino, in agreement with the Commune which took on the work as a main reference point of its cultural policy, ensured that the Superintendency for the Environment and Architecture of Naples promoted, from 1995, the carrying-out of the first and most urgent work with national funding (Law 32/92) and European co-financing (FESR Funds). The project was defined by professor of Architecture A. Venditti and C. Cundari (architectural project in collaboration with Architect S. de Pretis), by Professor Catello d'Amico (building work) and Engineer C. Ferone (installations).
