abstract

This paper presents a full transcript of a booklet of documents written in 1598 and in 1599 related to a restoration project of the church San Giacomo in Rialto. These reports provide an overview of the preservation conditions of the medieval church at the time, and they also discuss both the need for repairs in the church itself and the plans for modern reconstruction. The aim of this article is to argue that ultimately a compromise was achieved between these two propositions: the church of San Giacomo di Rialto was totally rebuilt between 1600 and 1601 respecting the typology of the medieval building and reusing some of the materials previously employed.
