Drawings on paper. Digital historical archives of the former Radaar Department at the University Sapienza School of Architecture in Rome


The paper presents the work now being carried out to develop digital archives of the historical drawings amassed by the former Department of Architectural and Environmental Surveying, Analysis and Drawing (Radaar) at the University Sapienza School of Architecture in Rome. These archives, consisting of original drawings on paper, are a collection of graphic material produced in connection with the courses in Monumental Surveying, Elements of Architectural and Monumental Surveying and Life Drawing held between 1935 and 1980, and provide invaluable testimony to the type of academic training offered to architects in those years.
