Abstract

Preservation of historic buildings is a demanding task, especially in seismic zones, where vulnerable constructions can suffer severe damages and losses. The last earthquake that struck the Abruzzo region in Italy in 2009 caused a particularly extensive damage. Lessons learned by previous experiences and the knowledge acquired through researches allowed facing the first emergency period involving universities, civil protection, and the Cultural Heritage Ministry. The result of this collaboration was the survey and the realization of emergency interventions for thousands of buildings in few months after the earthquake, waiting for the definition and design of definitive solutions.
