Extract from number XVII of the journal «Archeologia dell’Architettura».

It collects the proceedings of a seminar that was held in Trento in October 2012, dedicated to "Construction techniques and construction sites of the Romanesque in northern Italy". A theme, this, often debated, but which has not yet found a satisfactory historiographical arrangement, both as regards the incubation phase in the Ottonian age, indebted to the Byzantine and Carolingian tradition, and for the different tendencies that manifested themselves during the XNUMXth century. Its evolution is in fact complex, in relation to the particularity of the aristocratic clients in northern Italy and the influences of the architectures developed in other regions of Western Europe. The critical discussion, also in this case, must start from an analytical study of the masonry stratigraphy and of the construction techniques, on which we focus in seven contributions.
