The research field in which this study is inserted is inherent in the transformations of the historical center in light of the strong pressures of various kinds that currently affect its modification.
Specifically, the case study of Asmara, in Eritrea, completely similar to the Italian context for its architectural history but less compromised by changes and additions for various contingent reasons to the specific history of the Country, allowed to contextualize the general questions to concentrate the attention on some fundamental themes concerning the modification - and, positively, the conservation - of the compositional and chromatic characteristics of the modernist architecture.
The study produced an overall reading of the historical urban context regarding the treated aspects that allowed to deepen the understanding of some formal characteristics of the twentieth-century architectural production functional and extensible to the knowledge and protection of local heritage as well as the Italian one and to define a methodological approach to the problem of the conservation of colors starting from the reconstruction of the successive architectural phases and the urban setting in which they were inserted, considering in parallel the theoretical and conceptual bases that at the international and local level have given rise to Eritrean production, examining its technical, ideological and social aspects.
In this sense, the path of analysis carried out, together with the direct examination of the buildings and the specific stratigraphic analyzes, is proposed as a useful cognitive contribution to support the hypotheses and the final conservative choices.
