Textile mills in Friuli (XIX-XX century). Building technique analysis and seismic refurbishment



The conservation of industrial architectures and the refurbishment project, must take into account the growing attention to the seismic risk of the built heritage, which the recent events of central Italy have made dramatically current. The different constructive nature and structural behavior of industrial buildings, impose a different approach, combining the new functional needs – and therefore the safety of the building – with its conservation as a testimony for future generations. The work focuses the Friulian textile industry buildings (XIX and XX century), studying their constructive techniques and identyfing some guidelines for the refurbishment.
