Abstract

The “documentation” is the need to gather informations collected for a specific topic so they can be available now and in the future. Obtaining the information is a process that involves many steps; all these processes expand and transform the common conception of the term, as not only a mere recording of a phenomenon. In this sense, the documentation becomes an operation "dynamic", as the basis for further considerations on the object analysed. In case of disasters or emergencies, if the risk of cultural heritage loss is considered as criteria for the identification of the operational priorities, the knowledge of its distribution in the territory is useful and necessary to the development of sector policy and for interventions planning in regards to land-use, land protection and land conservation. The documentation of an artwork before restoration can be summarized in three sequential steps: preliminary documentation to identify the problem and guide the next steps; systematic and comprehensive documentation, to provide both global and detail vision on the artwork; additional documentation, with further investigation and checks to be developed over time. “CDR - Conservation Digital Report” software system allows the drafting and completion online of an actual “condition report” for many different kind of artworks, thanks to a flexible and interactive emersoftware that can be adjusted according to the different public or private requirements, creating personalized documents. The system’s potential will be illustrated through some examples both as the standardization process documentation for the conservation and restoration in case of emergency.
