Abstract

In this text, tentative guidelines for protection and rehabilitation of historical buildings subjected to earthquakes are presented. After an introduction referring to the task of intervention on a historical building, the restrictions due to the lack of information and the nature of the historical building are briefly described. The intervention process on a historical building is subsequently presented, and its phases are briefly described. Descriptions refer to the following points of the historical building intervention process: the identification of the basic structural character of the building, the investigation and documentation of its present condition, of the analysis of the structure, of the repair and strengthening methods and technics, and of the special needs for supervision of the repair work.
