Description

What became of the castles in the years of the First World War? Is it possible to trace a continuity of use of medieval structures even in the modern era? The volume, which was born as the final moment of the conference "Castles at war", tries to answer these questions and the many others that arose in the debate, focusing on the stringent relationships between medieval and Austro-Hungarian fortifications, restoring a new reading, unprecedented for castellology in the Trentino area, of those contexts in which the two instances overlapped interacting physically and symbolically. An analysis of the transformations of medieval contexts, which began at the end of the nineteenth century and continued well beyond the beginning of the Great War, which also aims to be an opportunity for reflection on the evolution of the defense of the territory, in relation to strategic choices, methodologies and architectural typologies developed or reworked as responses to the various war requirements, in a region that has always been considered a “fortress”, also due to the nature of the places.
