Abstract

Prof. Luigia Binda was a Full Professor in Restoration at the School of Architecture of Politecnico di Milano. She began her career teaching building and construction techniques, then strengthening and reinforcement of masonry buildings and preservation of cultural heritage. L. Binda, in her long scientific activity, addressed her interest to historic masonry structures, with a strategic broad knowledge of the process and merging knowledge from different research fields. Thanks to her multidisciplinary attitude, a deep passion toward puzzling problems and a gentle approach, she was able to combine conservation and safety issues with a robust experimental knowledge of masonry behavior, giving an extraordinary impulse to the research into the experimental understanding, modelling, strengthening and preserving the cultural heritage. The paper shortly illustrates the main aspects of selected topics among the most outstanding contributions given by Prof. L. Binda in research, and describes the advancements made possible in many related fields, both academic and of professional practice. The title of each chapter starts with a typical sentence L. Binda used to remind people, which summarizes at a glance the importance of that specific aspect in the topic. In the authors view, it also implicitly indicates the innovative character of her insights and her extraordinary dedication to research.
