PROVACI - Tecnologie per la PROtezione sismica e la VAlorizzazione di Complessi di Interesse culturale
The Project PROVACI - Tecnologie per la PROtezione sismica e la VAlorizzazione di Complessi di Interesse culturale aims at developing sustainable methodologies and technologies to increase seismic resistance of historical buildings and cultural heritage sites. Also management and promotion of rehabilitated, historical sites are part of the project, and the themes developed intertwine in the various tasks. The Project foresees several demonstrators, located in different regions of Italy, and findings and results of the research activities performed are tested both in the proper sites and in laboratories, (samplings representing old structures have been produced for testing purpose). The demonstrators are located in the following historical sites: Convento di S. Angelo D’Ocre (L’Aquila); Palazzo Penne, Napoli; Arena di Verona; Area archeologica Cerreto Sannita (Benevento); Domus dei fondi ex Cossar di Aquilea (Udine).
The project’s goals are the following:
- Development of new methodologies to assess seismic vulnerability at larger scale;
- Research on high-tech solution to abate seismic risk and assessment of their sustainability;
- Research on new monitoring systems;
- Development of Tools to value and promote cultural heritage sites; Knowledge integration.
Duration: 4 years (2011-2015)
