Keywords: Cultural heritage, Digital archive, Cataloguing, Virtual reconstruction, Digital Survey
Abstract. Rome is one of the cities with the largest green areas in the world, spread in villas and estates, within the municipal territory. But there is also a landscape triangle that radially branches out from the historic center, including a variety of unique situations (archaeological, historical – social, settlement, agriculture ...) in the world: the Caffarella and aqueducts Park. Inside, the Farnesiana estate, Capo di Bove, it's a witness of a widespread degradation process in the Roman countryside, which requires a gradual procedure of knowledge, cataloguing, restoration and re-functioning of the historical heritage. In this regard, the research is part of a larger study project of the Department of Architecture of Roma Tre, concerning farmhouses of the Roman countryside that deal with worrying degradation conditions and which require imminent intervention.
