L'AQUILA - ITALY
Integrated contract design
Convent of St. Catherine is located in the historic center of the city of L'Aquila. It is the result of the stratification of interventions, extensions and overlays, which have evolved over time for different types of need of the structure. The earthquake of 6 April 2009 seriously damaged the structures of the Convent by testing the behavior and resistance of the structural elements. For this reason ASDEA chose to intervene at idling speed with innovative methods and techniques, durable, reversible and compatible material, paying particular attention to the basic principles of restoration.
