The assessment of the school heritage of the early XX century from historical research to onsite investigation



The paper is going to discuss assessment methods and technologies for historical buildings – from analysis of historical records to onsite diagnostic investigation – in order to point out how the correlation of available sources and data might address the diagnosis process. In detail, the paper is going to focus on the school heritage of the early XX century, where the requirement of high safety levels for so-called relevant structures implies high knowledge levels to guarantee the challenging and desirable balance between conservation and transformation.
