Restoration and seismic strengthening of the Casino a Collevernesco

Sant’Elisa (AQ), Italy


The 19th Century casino had severe damage after the 2009 L’Aquila earthquake and was completely retrofitted between 2012 and 2014 together  with the arch. Vincenzo Ciolina. The use of innovative strengthening technologies consisting of composite meshes in a hydraulic lime mortar matrix made it possible to safely preserve the internal 19th-century wall structure of thin brick partitions and in-folio vaults, although severely damaged by the earthquake.
