Abstract

In the vast panorama of aptly valorisable archaeological heritage, a very peculiar topic deals with the status of the “in cripta” ruins, characterised by indelible sedimentation and by thick spatial and conservative limitations, which require a particular musealisation typology, suitable for interpreting and recognising archaeological remains. The frequent tendency to present the underground ruins has led to specific musealisation strategies and subsequent conservative methodologies, the former calibrated to overcome the limits set by superstructures and the latter to face particularly aggressive deterioration factors. A museographic practice used in archaeological crypts consists of creating emotional atmospheres along the paths running across the ruins, by the use of appropriate lighting and soundscape. This would re-evoke the original usage and function of the recovered spaces, thus making the various elements much more communicative altogether. The following contribution is intended to point out the different strategies which might be adopted in the conservation and valorisation processes of archaeological crypts. Due to the newly developed conscience of the value of archaeological rests and their conservation in situ, however, some of these strategies may be considered as insufficient, both in their conservative and in their evocative aspect, or simply because their historical function has weakened.
