Types and models of ltalian Modern Heritage. The work of Giuseppe Vaccaro in Emilia Romagna Region (1930 – 1950)



The aim of this contribution is the definition of a methodology to identify the formal and functional characters to be protected in restoration works on Modern architecture. This method can become the basis for further analysis on their performance improvement, and expecially on seismic vulnerability. The identification of their constructive and structural lacks in the relationship with the historic protective restricions and regulatory adaptation can be useful to plan seismic improvement intervention as required by current legislation. The study focuses on the work of Giuseppe Vaccaro in Emilia Romagna, particularly on four architectures built between the 1930s and the 1950s, having different destinations, both public and private.
