The traditional building construction in Abruzzo is strongly characterized by the presence of earthquake resistant systems because of the many earth tremors happened through the centuries.

Abstract

The traditional building construction in Abruzzo is strongly characterized by the presence of earthquake resistant systems because of the many earth tremors happened through the centuries. Between the 15th and the 20th Century the region was characterized by very strong earthquakes which modified the historical and figurative features of the building and submitted it to a technical and empirical analysis, studying though the seismicity of the areas the possibility of resources or the possibility building yard. Today the reality is very different, not because of the lack of technical and building examination that produced it, but because of the mistaken of renovation culture, different from the past where the work was very careful, salvaging whatever possible, replacing the irreparable damages, reinforcing the weak parts, but without changing the substance of the fabric. This paper tries to retrace the articulated story of earthquake resistant systems, on the basis of firsthand documents resulting from accurate measurements of their geometry and their formal structure and residual material. The purpose is the verification of the recovery projects, emancipated from confusion between conservation and speculation and coinciding with the enhancement and virtuous recovery actions.
