The chapter V in the volume “Restauro anno zero” (edited by Francesco Tomaselli) shows the contribution of the English culture to the definition of the Restoration as a discipline, and publicizes documents not translated into Italian so far, including the “Papers on the conservation of ancient monuments and remains” valid throughout the United Kingdom (1862, first version), SPAB documents and some letters of William Morris. The margins chronologically range from early studies of the prehistoric site of Stonehenge (60s of XVIII c.) to the founding of the National Trust (1895, at the suggestion of John Ruskin). The research, in particular, offers original insights on international protest campaign started in 1879 by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Building against the restoration of the west front of the Basilica of San Marco in Venice.
