Un'occasione perduta: l'Eden Teatro Biondo di Ernesto Basile. Dai disegni di archivio alla ricostruzione digitale

Risultato della ricerca: Conference contribution


The work aims to the conjectural reconstruction of the Teatro Biondo Eden Project (1912) by Ernesto Basile in Palermo (Palermo 1857-1932) from his original drawings.The building offers a typology that combines cinema (ground floor) and theater (upstairs). Thought as a front of Piazza Verdi, it was not realized for costs deemed too high by customers.The scans of the original drawings (preserved at the Basile Fund of the Department of Architecture of the University of Palermo) allowed the plain vectorization used for analysis and 3D modeling. The decorations were made by merging solid modeling and transformation into normal maps of hand drawings.The photo insertions were obtained through superposition of rendered views on the photos of the square, taking care to have the coincidence of the virtual camera with the real camera.The digital reconstruction has allowed the analysis of the research subjects and the display of the volume, of masonry parties, of the interior spaces, as well as the configuration of the square where the building had been built, making visible the relationship that it would have established with the facing Theatre Massimo, his father's Giovan Battista Filippo work, completed by the same Ernesto.The studies on Ernesto Basile, up tu now mainly of historical cutting, are numerous.The main ones are:E. Sessa, Ernesto Basile 1857-1932, fra accademismo e "moderno", un'architettura della qualità, Palermo 2010.E. Sessa, Dall’eclettismo classicista al modernismo, Palermo 2002.E. Mauro ed E. Sessa, Giovan Battista Filippo ed Ernesto Basile. Settant'anni di Architetture, I disegni restaurati della Dotazione Basile 1859-1929, Palermo 2000.
