This paper presents some results of a study carried out on an urban block placed in the historical centre of Catania.

The goal was to highlight all the items which could be correlated to structural response in presence of seismic action both as improvement and weakening; this kind of analysis is the so called “critical reading”, in which, the buildings are examined in such a way to point out all the significant details, at the scale of single building as well as in their connections.

Abstract

This paper presents some results of a study carried out on an urban block placed in the historical centre of Catania. The study was finalised to assess its seismic vulnerability and later on to suggest the mitigation intervention criteria. The used methodology started collecting information on the structural relationship among buildings as well as on constructive techniques of each building. Moreover the historical events as well as the evolution and transformation of both the buildings and the block were reconstructed. The goal was to highlight all the items which could be correlated to structural response in presence of seismic action both as improvement and weakening; this kind of analysis is the so called “critical reading”, in which, the buildings are examined in such a way to point out all the significant details, at the scale of single building as well as in their connections.
