Operational methodology for the reconstruction of Baroque Ephemeral apparatuses: the case study of the funeral apparatus for Cardinal Mazarin in Rome
This paper aims to develop a methodology of study of Ephemeral artefacts that takes into consideration all the different aspects of the specific art form that is Ephemeral Baroque Architecture. Through the study of the social and artistic characteristics of this art form, the analysis of a wide range of case studies will help defining some common and recurring features, especially regarding available data (engravings, paintings, manuscripts, etc.) The main goal of the research will be to outline a methodology of approach to the single cases based on reconstruction from text and graphic data, with special attention reserved to the relationship between the ephemeral apparatus and the surrounding urban space. The effectiveness of the methodology is tested through the application to the case study of the funeral apparatus for Cardinal Mazarin in Rome (1661).
