Abstract

In the renewed urban structure plan, coherent with the spirit of the “Grande Aquila” project promoted by the Podestà Adelchi Serena, one finds the complex events linked to the project and the building of the terminal section on Corso Federico II. This project, between 1940 and 1947, was commissioned to construction on behalf of the National Fascist Institution for worker’s compensation insurance or Istituto Nazionale Fascista per l’Assicurazione contro gli Infortuni sul Lavoro (INFAIL), for the creation of the headquarters and of a movie theatre. . The purpose of this research is to give a direct and critical reading of the chosen constructive systems and of the constructive solutions adapted in the erection of two important buildings. Both are significant in the local context of Italian architecture of the 1900s, a period in which the use of reinforced concrete in Italy finds, for cultural and also political-economical reasons, different variations fused by a bond with the building technique or object of a hidden technological experimentalism. This research is useful to describe the criticisms and problems posed following the earthquake of April 2009, by the necessary reparation interventions employed both to conserve and improve the seismic capacity of this particular building heritage.
