The paper will consist of three paragraphs in which will be treated, particularly in the first, the problems related to the planned conservation strategies, according to a critically informed approach applied to historical buildings, and new computer technologies. In the second, on the other hand, will be contextualized the strategic objectives conjugated according to brick architecture issues; and finally, the third section will show a case study as an example of good practice. The main objective is to separate the discussion from a mere succession of conservative actions, by carrying out the argument on a much properly theoretical subject with special emphasis on the architectural approach to the conservation issues based, in the first place, on the knowledge of used materials, on the supply tracks and, finally, on the common placing methods. The knowledge of these aspects is not secondary, because it properly involves those distinctive aspects of a technical culture that has been able to give different forms to the same material at different times; and not only that, in fact, depending on how, for example, a wall is laid changes its behaviour to deterioration issues and, as a result, the actions to be taken, under equal conditions, may be different. The challenge, of course, is to ensure the conservation of architectural heritage through preventive and planned actions, by postponing isolated intervention to exceptional events supported by a meticulous maintenance and monitoring activity
