Abstract

After the catastrophic earthquake occurred in the city of L’Aquila on April 2009, the theme of complete reconstruction of buildings within a consolidated historical context was re-established. This theme, mostly debated in Italian architectural criticism, finds very few examples in the national context. The building concept of this study case is inspired by the adjacent historic buildings. A ventilated façade of fibre cement plays and dialogues with the context, trying to use this facade to reconcile the new building with the historical context trying with different architectural languages and historical phases.
