dc.description.abstract Il preoccupante stato di conservazione in cui si trovano il complesso di Tokar Dara 1 e altre testimonianze buddhistiche ancora presenti nella Valle dello Swāt (Pakistan) è ormai, da diversi anni, all’attenzione della comunità scientifica internazionale. Il presente studio, che s’inserisce in un rapporto di collaborazione tra Sapienza - Università di Roma e Istituto Italiano per l’Africa e l’Oriente (IsIAO), intende fornire un ulteriore, seppur parziale, apporto alla conoscenza dell’architettura del Gandhāra nello Swāt e dei suoi complessi religiosi. Il complesso (I e IV-V secolo d. C.) conserva, seppur allo stato di rudere, diverse strutture del repertorio architettonico monastico del Gandhāra: da un ‘tumulo’ funerario principale (stūpa) a un altare minore (relic schrine/vihara), da un vasto monastero con sala per assemblee a un sistema di acquedotto e cisterne. The alarming state of conservation of Buddhist complexes in the Swāt Valley (Pakistan) calls the attention of the international community. This territory is subject of crisis because of social, political and religious reasons, and the Buddhist heritage is often point of assault and destruction. The research is focuses on the site of Tokar-Dara 1 and its religious buildings that are in a state of neglect and decay; this condition causes not only the lack of interest by the international culture, but especially by the country where the buildings are located. The best resources should work for a common goal to support legislative initiatives, protection policies, enhancement of the management processes, to provide a better protection of the cultural heritage and to ‘value’ the places. en_US
